About Us

Scott and Meg McMillan are the couple behind independent homewares stores and lifestyle brand Tea Pea. Started twelve 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. Scott and Meg 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 of Scott and Meg, 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.

Scott and Meg 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 also has a day job in the world of advertising. Each day is a jam-packed mix of the latest round velvet cushions, Icelandic sheepskins and rattan daybeds, football, princesses, and uneaten lunches at the bottom of school bags.

A splendidly chaotic life.
