Tangerine & Teal is the creation of my sister Vanessa and myself Sacha, we were born in and grew up in NZ in the 70's, our father John Staniford is a well known NZ artist and ran a successful screen printing business so we were surrounded by art and design as kids. We now live in different countries but still share a passion for mid-century modern furniture and collectables so together formed Tangerine & Teal in 2013.
Vanessa is based in Auckland N.Z, she worked in a corporate career until she had her children and became a stay at home Mum, it was then she was able to persue her real passions, she is an artist and designer who trades and restores mid-century pieces including Otto Larsen, Don, Jon Jansen, Parker, Ercol, Stag and Viking, as well as some other iconic Kiwi design furniture pieces.
I have a love of art and design and am based in Sydney, I had always loved the mid-century style so when I saw my big sister Vanessa restoring and selling furniture, I did what most little sisters do and copied her starting my own business in Sydney. I buy, restore and sell items made by the mid 20th century Australian furniture makers including Parker, Chiswell, TH Brown, Wrightbilt, Fler, Snelling, Fred Lowen, Featherston and Danish Deluxe.
