Steeped in the history of the Old Central Fire Station...


Brian & Tracy Hawker purchased the Old Central Fire Station building in 2017 with the establishment of a furniture and homeware store in mind. Not only did it offer the perfect environment for a design store but it also proved to be a perfect lifestyle move, as they completely renovated the apartment upstairs.

Tracy’s homeware and interior design flair is well known in Whanganui, having owned Country Lane Originals in the town centre since 2006, and La Station is the perfect expression of this.

Learn more about Tracy and Brian’s journey and the history of the building on the Our Story page. We hope you enjoy shopping online and we look forward to seeing you in store to experience La Station first hand.
