welcome to NODE, a place unlike any other in New Zealand.



There's nothing like it, which is why we decided to make it ourselves.

NODE founder Liz Carlson, who runs one of the biggest and most renowned lifestyle and travel blogs in the world, Young Adventuress

a space where nature and design intersect.

Here at NODE, we're houseplant fans, nature lovers, and creatives who curate premium plants and bespoke goods for the nature-inspired home. Along with running events and pop-ups tailored to the modern millennial, we source our products from an inspirational community of artisans, growers, designers, and ethical suppliers who do good for the planet through their work.


“With almost 90% of our time spent indoors, a home that supports our well-being is just as important as self-care; they’re intrinsically connected.”


Come join us at our indoor jungle at NODE to pick out the perfect plant baby for your home.

Usually open Wednesdays to Sundays from 10am - 5pm (ish)

Saturdays at 9am for the Lyttelton farmers market

Giulio Sturla

New Zealand chef of the year 2018 – Formerly Roots restaurant owner

With a bespoke test kitchen, Mapu, in the back of the 120-year-old heritage port building, Liz and Giulio work together to bring unforgettable events and experiences to life.
Here we offer collabs between NODE and Mapu to offer the best of both worlds. Whether it's our signature tacos and champagne parties, or a privately catered celebration at NODE by Giulio or a divine degustation dinner in the jungle with guest chefs, there will be plenty of delicious collaborations being served up at NODE.

From houseplants to luxury degustation dinners in the gardens, NODE has sprung to life as the source that bridges the gap between plants and people.

Are you an exciting new business looking for a cool space to use? Wanna host a pop-up? Want to experiment in-person with your business without signing a lease?

2020 is the year for working together. Let's start something new.

Here at NODE we are always on the lookout for new and exciting collaborations to make use of the space, however, we will always maintain a discerning approach to partnerships in order to remain true to our values and ethics.


To plant a garden is to
believe in tomorrow.
