The Suburb

Port Macquarie is a town at the mouth of the Hastings River in New South Wales, Australia. It’s known for its beaches, wildlife and penal colony past. St. Thomas’ Anglican Church was built by convicts in the 19th century. A coastal walk from the town centre to the 19th-century Tacking Point Lighthouse offers views over waters home to whales and dolphins. Billabong Zoo is known for its koala breeding centre.

Port Macquarie’s central business district contains two shopping centres, many specialty stores, a marina, and the starting point for the 9 km coastal walk, a scenic walking trail that travels from Westport Park, through the Port Macquarie CBD to Tacking Point Lighthouse. The Glasshouse, a centrally located arts, conference and entertainment centre, includes a visitor-information facility.

What We Did

To furnish their waterside deck, the Waters Edge Boutique Hotel selected our Lagoa Wicker Chairs and paired these with Astoria Aluminium Table Bases with Gentas Wenge Duratops.  Additionally they selected Aqua Sun loungers to put by the pool.

Note: Waters Edge has used dark coloured table tops with full sun exposure.  Nextrend does not recommend this. Dark colours used in direct sunlight become hot and will fade over time. The core material can also expand which will then cause the top to bow upwards/downwards at the edges.

The Suburb

South West Rocks is located on the Mid North Coast of New South WalesAustralia, near the mouth of the Macleay River. It is approximately 40 km (25 mi) from KempseyJerseyville is located nearby.

Arakoon was originally established as the township on Trial Bay in 1866. However, by 1889, South West Rocks had established itself as a popular bathing resort with people of the Macleay Valley. South West Rocks got its name most likely from the captains of passing ships, who claimed it was safest to moor vessels near the rocks, south west of Laggers Point (the point on which Trial Bay Gaol is built). Another theory is that their moorings would be safe if they kept the rocks to their south west. Trial Bay was named after a brigThe Trial, which was stolen and wrecked by convicts in 1816 in the bay that now bears its name.[citation needed]

On 13 May 1770, Captain James Cook observed smoke from a fire on a mountain which he named Smoky Cape. The headland in front of the mountain is now the location of Smoky Cape Lighthouse.[citation needed]

In 1972, a Sydney Harbour showboat, Sydney Queen, and the former Newcastle car carriers Lurgurena and Koondooloo, were wrecked on the Main Beach after breaking free from their moorings in heavy storms.[3] Elements of all three vessels were salvaged, but the hull of Sydney Queen filled with sand and could not be removed. It was eventually burned to the waterline to remove the obstruction from the beach.[3]

What We Did

In 2016, to furnish the large deck area at the Riverside Tavern, Nextrend were engaged.  Utilising Florida Chairs to compliment the relaxed resort feeling provided by the water views and greenery, these were matched with Black Astoria Table Bases with Marble Duratops to complete the look.  Four years on and the products still look brand new.

Club Byron aka “The Bowlo”

You can discover more about Club Byron by visiting clubbyron.com.au or why not drop in next time you are in town.  You will find them at: 18-20 Marvell St, Byron Bay NSW 2481

The Suburb

Byron Bay is a coastal town in the southeastern Australian state of New South Wales. It’s a popular holiday destination, known for its beaches, surfing and scuba diving sites. Cape Byron State Conservation Park is on a headland with a lighthouse. Between June and November, humpback whales can be spotted from headland viewpoints such as the Captain Cook Lookout.

The local Arakwal Aboriginal people’s name for the area is Cavvanbah, meaning “meeting place”.[2] Lieutenant James Cook named Cape Byron after Royal Navy officer John Byron, circumnavigator of the world and grandfather of the poet Lord Byron.

The first industry in Byron was cedar logging from the Australian red cedar (Toona ciliata). The timber industry is the origin of the word “shoot” in many local names – Possum Shoot, Coopers Shoot and Skinners Shoot – where the timber-cutters would “shoot” the logs down the hills to be dragged to waiting ships.[5] Timber getting became insignificant after World War I and many former timber workers became farmers.

Gold mining of the beaches was the next industry to occur. Up to 20 mining leases set up on Tallow Beach to extract gold from the black sands around the 1870s.

Today, Byron Bay is one of the most up-market residential areas on the Australian east coast with the growth in multi-million dollar mansions now pushing the median value of house sales up beyond AU$1.5 million in 2017, over a 100% increase since 2013, based on 2018 data from realestate.com.au.

What We Did

Club Byron engaged Nextrend Furniture to supply furniture for use throughout the club.

A dining area was established with a combination of regular and bar height table settings utilising Carlton Table Frames matched with Melamine Table Tops.  To provide seating for the tables, Ares Chairs and Ares Barstools were used.

Additionally you will also find Jamaica Barstools and Deena Lounges within the club.
