About Us


Welcome to Chaos by Design Nz!!!

Kia Ora, we are Katie and  David and we are the faces behind

Chaos by Design Nz.

David and Katie, the faces behind the creations

We are a small family run Business handcrafting Art, Homewares and Gifts using Natural Materials, Resin, Alcohol Ink, Metal and many other materials and mediums to bring you unique, high quality Products. 

David and I live in Eketahuna with our wonderful son Tristan, we moved down to the Tararua district in 2012 from Great Barrier Island in the Hauraki Gulf.

In 2020 we bought our first home here in Eketahuna and started working towards our ultimate dream of creating a sustainable small business together.

This year I was incredibly lucky to quit my day job as a home-based early childhood educator of 8 years and convert my detached playroom into my art studio!

David and I are both creative souls, who absolutely love bringing the ideas in our mind into reality through art, sculpture and design.

Working with wood and natural materials has been a huge focus for us and we try to incorporate natural materials into the majority of our work.

When I discovered Resin 5 years ago, I absolutely fell in love with this versatile medium and it has become a main component in a lot of my works to date.

We look forward to creating a successful sustainable business and seeing where this journey will take us and we could not do this, without the support of our friends and family our amazing customers and everybody who visits our online store, social media pages and likes or buys our products so from the bottom of our hearts we are so incredibly thankful and grateful to everyone who has been following this journey with us!
