"I have always had an affiliation with design, firstly with a career designing and buying soft furnishing fabrics, then fashion.
When the Christchurch earthquakes turned our lives upside down, it forced me to rethink many aspects of my life. I decided to leave my job which required frequent overseas trips and look for something that would allow me to stay close to my husband and 2 young daughters.In 2012 I founded Ico Traders, sourcing and curating a range of enamel lightshades and vintage industrial lighting.
Home was where I was working from, so it was a natural progression for me to start designing things, for in and around my environment – Wire furniture became my obsession and continues to this day, its an ever changing process and to be able to bring the White Oak element into our range means that we are making more and more of our products back here in New Zealand.
In 2019 Ico Traders is still a small kiwi company consisting of me, my part time sidekick Bridgett and my constant furry companions.
Ico wire furniture is designed by Miranda and is exclusive to Ico Traders. Many hours of thought has gone into each design, each piece created is simple in design and functional in use.
The simpleness of the designs, allow them to outlast fashion trends and sit comfortably within any interior or exterior style. While so many of todays products are disposable, Ico Trader's aim is to make timeless designs that can be passed onto the next generation.
Each design is manufactured using a hand crafted method, shaping and spot welding every wire, to create both strength, comfort and style, the wires are placed closely together for seating and surprise all with how comfortable they are. Cushions are aesthetically pleasing, but totally not necessary.
Ico Trader's wire furniture has a PVDF base coat for rust resistance & are then powdercoated in Ico Traders exclusive colour range. This means they can be used both inside and in sheltered outdoor areas. However, with our beautiful but harsh New Zealand climate, the more you care for your furniture, the longer it will last.
