A Look Inside

DStevens has teamed up with Interiors to bring you an incredible range of fabrics and window coverings.

Watching Jude Stock spend time with her clients – unhurried, patient and sharing laughter –  you’d be forgiven for thinking she was catching up with a long-lost friend. Jude left her comfortable rural surroundings 11 years ago to pursue an obsession with fabric and textiles that took hold of her at a young age. “I was very fortunate to get employment with Peter Grant at Interiors – a wonderful kitchen / blind and curtain shop in Gisborne.” In the years following, Jude worked tirelessly to help her clients perfect their spaces. Jude worked with Peter Grant until his death 7 years ago; at which point his family asked her to manage Interiors until the business was sold to Katrina Pepper. She continued to work with Katrina at Interiors on Gladstone Road, offering her advice and knowledge to all aspects of the business. 

Earlier this year, Jude made a strong decision to explore her love of fabrics and textiles even further and purchased the curtains and blinds segment of Interiors. We are very excited to welcome Jude, and Interiors, to DStevens. Peter Stevens, DStevens’ Managing Director believes this is an exciting time for the local industry.

“For over 60 years, DStevens has been a leader in Construction, Joinery and Interiors, delivering exemplary work to enhance Gisborne’s built environment. Interiors curtains are sewn with outstanding workmanship, so it is a natural fit for us to work together. To be able to support Jude and her new business is extremely exciting and we look forward to watching her develop.”

As a Curtain and Blind Specialist Jude provides free quotes and advice to help her clients achieve the look and style that suits them. She draws inspiration from the project, not trends. With each project she helps to create finishing’s that are imaginative, inspiration and unique. “The choosing of fabric is the hardest part but eventually it all becomes clear.” The new-look Interiors offer a wide range of beautiful samples to choose from including Maurice Kain, Sekers, James Dunlop, Warwick, Uniflex, Hemptech, and Charles Parsons. They also provide a great range of curtain rods, rails and shutters to suit any interior.
