At home with Claire Hammon & Greg Fromont of Meadowlark
A business with genuine heart, we have seen them make the hard decisions for the right reasons to ensure they are always true to their values. We have loved being part of their quest to tell stories and celebrate connections through beautiful design, and we will always remember the out-of-this-world floral installation they brought along for an in-store event.
As part of our 'You are my home' campaign, we spoke with Claire and Greg on what home means to them and how the idea of home is encapsulated within their collections.
What does home mean to you, what does it look like/feel like?
Home is wherever we are. For us it looks like being completely comfortable and relaxed, sleeping in all snuggled up in beautiful bedding. Or listening to records and laying in the sun, connecting with friends and feeling like your bucket is full.
Where in Aotearoa do you feel most at home?
Claire: I feel most at home in our house with Greg and our daughter, although I feel especially comfortable in the South Island catching up with old friends without the busyness of Auckland in the background. Wanaka especially give me a grounded sense of calm, and belonging with friends I may not see for many years but it’s like yesterday when I am back with them.
Greg: I do experience some nostalgia when I go back to the north shore. As you drive in to the east coast bays you can see the sea from almost every direction, and this in turn, connects me back to my family who have connection with the sea.
What piece of jewellery in your current collection speaks to the idea of home?
Claire: I think all jewellery you wear each day that becomes a part of you, gives a feeling of home. For me the pieces I wear daily are the Camille stone studs, the Claude rings, the Camille necklace and the dove & heart charm necklace. Pieces I never take off and feel incomplete without.
