Bombo is Italian for Bumble Bee.
Like us, the bumble bee is a generalist forager - and it's in Italian as a nod to our heritage.
Established in 2019 at boutique shopping centre, The Tannery, on Christchurch's east side, we offer an evolving range of classic, stylish products for everyday life.
We are maximalists.
We layer texture, colour, pattern; stack books, cram shelves, cover every surface in beautiful objets. We love STUFF. What we don't love is waste: trendy items that don't age, inferior quality goods that don't last, synthetic materials that don't break down. We get frustrated by style fads, built-in obsolescence, and the idea that everything has to be "new".
From this desire for everything to be beautiful AND sustainable, Bombo was conceived. We believe you can have more - responsibly. We focus on reconditioned, repurposed, and reconstructed vintage goods where practicable, and natural, sustainable, renewable, recyclable and reclaimed materials for the rest
Our carefully curated range of new and vintage goods is influenced by the colourful and eclectic bohemian interiors of Paris and California, with a focus on rustic, traditional materials and craftsmanship.
From furniture to clothing, we offer a selection of timeless products that celebrate individuality and which are at home in both traditional and contemporary spaces.
We have sourced a collection of everyday classics which will not date,
instead mellowing and improving with age, ensuring they are with you for the long haul.
