15 Years of Tea Pea 



Meg and Scott McMillan are the couple behind independent homewares stores and lifestyle brand Tea Pea. Started 15 years ago as one of the pioneering online stores, Tea Pea has grown to two bricks and mortar stores and continues a thriving online presence. 

Its founding values have remained firmly planted throughout this time, that of inspiration, creativity and generosity of knowledge. Meg and Scott are committed to bringing together independent brands and designers from New Zealand and around the World, curating the unique look and feel Tea Pea is known for. New brands are invited, and most existing designers have become personal friends with their long history in the industry.

Tea Pea's design leading stores evoke happiness and joy achieved by a winning mix of sought-after brands and tactile goods of colour and quality.
Whether you’re shopping in-store or online, expect friendly and knowledgeable staff to help and inspire. There’s a story behind every brand and product in-store that the team at Tea Pea love to share with you.

Meg and Scott live in a 1950’s house in the leafy Wellington suburb of Khandallah with their three lively children - Griffin, Coco and Rosie and Tibetan Spaniel pups, Wolfgang and Dolly. Scott is also a partner in the marketing communications company, Once Upon a Time and a board member of Retail NZ. Each day is a jam-packed mix of the latest round velvet cushions, Icelandic sheepskins, rattan daybeds, football, mountain biking, princesses, and uneaten lunches at the bottom of school bags.

A splendidly chaotic life.
