MATISSE Thirty Years On

MATISSE Thirty Years On
Eye Magazine Issue 76

Very special celebrations are in order at Matisse – it has been thirty years since Jeanne and Alan Bertenshaw opened the doors of a business that has set the standards for authentic contemporary design in New Zealand.

As much as the business has been about the support of valued clients over the years, plus the hard work and juggling involved in building up a business, the aspect that differentiates Matisse from the rest of the pack is the ability of both Jeanne and Alan to discern, at the outset, whether a newly minted design is going to succeed in the marketplace, or even better, become a design classic. On their annual visits to the world’s most prestigious furniture fairs, they only choose what they themselves genuinely like and don’t presume to guess the taste and inclinations of their client base… read the rest of this article free on issu.com

Many of these products and treatments can be helpful and convenient for both men and women seeking to look good on the outside, and feel confident facing the challenges of a new day. But how much are we really spending? Read the rest of this article free on issu.com

Back-sleep your way to beauty
The Beauty Book Collector’s Edition 6

It’s a fact that as we age, we develop lines or wrinkles. Some are caused by frowning, smiling and other muscle movement and other wrinkles are unrelated to movement or expressions and can be caused by the positions in which we sleep.

The rustic surroundings and buzz of the area, combined with the wafting smells of wood fired pizza and tomatoes take me to a European marketplace. Of course, I am at Dante’s Pizzeria, the popular eatery that has become infamous for it’s delicious and authentic Southern Italian cuisine.

However, I am not here for pizza. What has brought me here is the lure of their new pasta menu, with favourites from Naples and Southern Italy… read the rest of this article free on issu.com
