At Home with Jennifer Keenan

Our talented Auckland Manager Jennifer has been working from her home in Auckland patiently waiting until she can return to the showroom. We asked her to share how she has been utilising her time in lockdown.



What is your isolation routine?

My day always starts with a walk around the beach in my suburb Devonport. This always brings me good energy and kick starts my day. Then I’m home for a good cup of coffee while answering my emails and attending to what needs to be addressed. Enjoyable time has been spent supporting family in my bubble by cooking them a nice dinner and taking the time to check in on one another


What are you reading at the moment?

I was given a book One Minute Crying Time written by Barbara Ewing, a memoir of one of New Zealand’s best-known actors. It covers her tumultuous childhood, adolescence and young adulthood in Wellington and Auckland in the 1950s and early 1960s before jetting off to London to study dramatic art. It was a thoroughly enjoyable and insightful read, 10/10 recommend.


What is the best piece of advice you have been given?

To look for joy and beauty in the simple things around us. During the days, rain or shine I wander along the Cheltenham beach searching for sea glass. Some of the soft washed colours are delightful. I now have a beautiful collection of opaque whites, light blues, and teal greens.



What is your favourite Frobisher piece at the moment?

The new Rolf Benz 594 Armchair and footstool designed by Sebastian Herkner. It is both an eye-catcher and a beautiful comfort zone. Its finely balance back curve embraces its occupant and allows sideways snuggling, creating a truly favourite spot. Upholstered in a luxurious premium deep blue velvet.


Favourite part about your role at Frobisher?

As the Auckland Showroom Manager no day looks quite the same. I love the process of getting to know clients and helping select the perfect piece for their projects. It’s a personal and tailored approach each time, and seeing how fabulous the selections look in their home is priceless!

Having previously run my own business, I understand the importance of providing quality service and endeavour to complete each task and interaction with an attitude of excellence and personality.

From the Frobisher team, we hope you’re keeping safe and looking after yourself.
