Hoopers is the home of Scandinavian and mid-century modern furnishings for your home.
Drawing from a wide range of local and international designers, manufacturers, and artisans, the ever-changing store features restored retro pieces and brand-new manufacturer collections.
Approaching 3 decades in the furniture business, owner Warren Hooper has cultivated a distinct, curated aesthetic for the store.
"About twenty years ago we really started to focus primarily on Scandinavian and mid-century modern designed furniture," says Hooper.
Drawn to the clean lines and organic design, the style is often referred to as "timeless" by clients, explains Hooper.
Starting out as a vintage reseller, Hoopers expanded the business to include modern offerings, seamlessly incorporating the styles into their showroom.
"Once I sold that beautiful teak sideboard, I couldn't pick up the phone and order another one," says Hooper, when asked about the challenges of selling vintage product.
"Whereas with the contemporary product, you've got a really great line with some pieces that are desirable, and you just have so much more to offer customers," he adds, pointing out the various finishes that become available.
