Ponsonby Lounge at Jervois Market

By popular demand, the Yu Mei Ponsonby Lounge is back this summer at Jervois Market. A premium concept space, Jervois Market is a collective of your favourite local designers and home for our Ponsonby Lounge. Alongside the Yu Mei Lounge, you will find Jasmin Sparrow, Harris Tapper, Loclaire, and Laing, with a small edit of Babelogue’s enviable travertine pieces displaying the designer wares, ready for their new homes.

Bringing you the same wonderful lounge experience with Phoebe’s familiar face, the Yu Mei Ponsonby Lounge houses our Spring 19 Juicy Fruits collection, with an exclusive Summer capsule coming soon. Shop Phoebe’s namesake, the new 3/4 Phoebe Bucket, from the source herself and discover the clever removable middle zip compartment.

Like its previous iteration, a feel of relaxed luxury is created in the lounge through a soft tonal palette and juxtaposition of textures - coarse limewash plinths, worn brass and the soft, inviting leather of our couch. The warmth of Tom Mackie’s wooden-framed works complements our fit out, perfectly echoing the natural materials and hand-crafted nature of each Yu Mei bag. We hope you will love visiting our beautiful lounge and invite you to stay a while - to learn about the brand, explore the collection or simply to lounge.

To celebrate our new temporary space, we hosted a party inviting our Auckland community for a drink. DJ Andy Heart Throb brought the tunes while Garage Project provided beers and our favourite natural wines, including the much-loved Fun Juice. Thanks to Garage Project for the refreshments, to Almighty for their range of sparkling waters, to Ophelia King for the beautiful photos, and to Someday Studios and the other designers who worked tirelessly to bring Jervois Market together.

As always thanks most of all to our nearest and dearest who came along, and to our beloved community of customers who champion Yu Mei everyday.
