Hollow Furniture

The Hollow Story

Jecoba has always been creative - as a little girl she would draw, scrapbook, sew and make all kinds of crafts out of what ever resources she had. As she grew up Jecoba developed her skills in painting, woodwork, sewing clothing and photography. After completing her degree in Graphic Design at Waikato University, she worked as an in-house designer creating branding and promotional pieces for a wide range of businesses, before becoming a freelance graphic designer working from home. During moments of procrastination Jecoba was always drawn to her love of interior design and would browse magazines and Pinterest finding ideas and inspiration. 

In 2014 when Jecoba and her husband John bought their first home, she was excited to personalise their space and make it their own. With very little furniture, and almost no decor, being a creative, Jecoba loved the opportunity to transform their space. During her free time Jecoba would design and make pieces of furniture and decor, trying out different design trends while developing her styling skills. She up-cycled cabinets & vintage chairs, re-purposed unexpected objects and built cape-cod inspired chairs using recycled pallets. When a friend commissioned one of her cape cod inspired chairs, Jecoba suddenly found herself in business. She had also listed, and quickly sold some of her one-off designs online, so began advertising the cape cod chairs as a made-to-order item. The bespoke design was popular and the orders were flooding in, this was the beginning of Hollow Furniture.

Fast forward a few years and Jecoba, with the help and support of her husband and her family, has built up a collection of bespoke furniture designs and home accents available through her online shop.

Jecoba is so pleased to welcome you to Hollow Furniture and invites you to browse the designs in her online shop and contact her with any questions or comments at hollowfurniture@gmail.com
