Who We Are


Nicky Tong and Claire Kingan-Jones


Nicky Tong and Claire Kingan-Jones met at the Nanette Cameron Interior Design School. Nicky and Claire both bring a wealth of design and business experience to Entrance Design. 

Nicky Tong's love of design started at the young age of 17 as an exchange student in Germany. From there she travelled the world extensively as an international flight attendant visiting the world's finest museums and galleries, opening her eyes to international design. It's this design inspiration that she wants to bring into NZ homes. Nicky has been working casually on interior design projects until her young family started school. 

Claire Kingan-Jones grew up in a creative environment in South Africa. After leaving South Africa in her early 20's she based herself in London, from there she travelled for 4 years before meeting her future husband and settling in New Zealand. Claire established and set up her eponymous clothing label Kingan-Jones but after almost 20 years of working in the rag trade, Claire has now shifted her design focus to the world of interior design. 

Together this duo brings a dynamic passion and energy to creating a new way to interior design your home. Combining their strengths they have come up with a concept that creates an exceptional experience, with the client's unique personal style at the forefront of their designs, creating spaces that compliment and enhance lifestyles.
