Kreo Home is a homewares philosophy who’s sole purpose is to seek out and showcase quality, quirky and somewhat unusual homewares & lifestyle products with an edge. While they appreciate creativity from all over the world, their main focus has been on championing talented Australian designers.
Created in March 2013, Kreo Home believes that it - just like design - should be constantly evolving. While the brand started out as an online store, it has quickly become a leader in the digital landscape; giving its suppliers - and other start-ups - a platform to showcase their work via social media.
Director Maggie Pana’s physical presence in the local design community has paved the way for the work of emerging designers to be further celebrated and promoted.
Please read on to see the various ways Kreo Home can enhance your brand. We look forward to working with you.
Kreo Home has featured in numerous publications both online and in print. Maggie Pana is also available for guest speaking and workshop events. See below to check out the best bits!

Maggie is not only a lovely person, but a great mentor and we really can’t speak highly enough about her”. - Sprout and Sparrow

Maggie's passion for what she does is so inspiring, and she has been the best person to turn to for advice for my creative small business." – Darling Mockingbird

Maggie is a real believer in all things handmade + local and has been a great support to my small one-woman band business +one. I have taken part in a few of Kreo Home's IG 'Local is the New Black' campaign competitions which support local business and have found them to be well run and they have also helped to increase interest in my own business. My products have also been featured several times on Kreo Home's IG page and I've also had my products reviewed.
