Creative designer and director, Lautofa Tulagalua, says competing against 2000 retailers is a huge achievement.
"To compete with mainstream retails in New Zealand is not easy," he says. "You have to be a real business to be recognised."
Over the last 15 years, House of Decor has provided distinct Pasifika decoration elements for high-end government and Pacific events.
House of Decor has also previously won two Top Shop Awards in 2015.
