Emma Harron

With her warm, approachable sales style, Emma is a natural fit to meet our clients in our showroom. With a lifelong interest in fashion and art, it wasn’t until working in a furniture shop 20 years ago that she found her calling in interiors and design. Before joining Studio Italia in 2012, Emma was with Ralph Lauren home in London for seven years – giving her the opportunity to work with some of the City’s most affluent and discerning clientele. A more recent memorable project was supplying the Grace dining chairs to the best seat in Auckland – at Sky Tower’s Sugar Club. Emma loves meeting people and guiding them through the process of furnishing their home in a way that’s enjoyable and inspiring, so they walk away happy and excited.

Marketa Ramage 

Marketa’s day starts with a beautiful ferry ride to work and then straight into working on exciting kitchen and wardrobe design projects. Globetrotter Marketa studied in Prague, before a move to Ottawa introduced her to European furniture and interiors. As well as gaining invaluable training and experience, she completed exceptional projects for locally-based diplomats. Moving to New Zealand with her husband, she discovered her true design passion.

Kate Fisher 

Kate joined the Studio Italia team over three years ago as Operations and Logistics Manager, with the opportunity to deal with Italy and Spain being too good to pass up. Her role encompasses the operational functions of our business and international logistics - from financial oversight to biosecurity matters to health and safety. Kate stays up to date on the latest design news on our brands and designers, as well as architecture and interiors. The move to this role was a natural transition, combining her skills and experience from previous industries, with a love of European languages and design. On Kate’s bookshelf, you’ll likely find Italian furniture catalogs and design books rubbing spines with biosecurity regulations for the Ministry for Primary Industries.
