About us

KA PAI - IS MAORI FOR GOOD WORK

Founded in 2020 KA PAI is a Brussels based creative studio and shop which specialises in unique residential and commercial styling projects. It is a response to our changing needs caused by the pandemic and a rebellion against white walled living. Homes need to function better and bring more joy as they become our new micro-worlds. Businesses need to create customer experiences that outshine their online competition. 


Originating from New Zealand, Sarah Bruford is the creative brain behind KA PAI. With two decades working internationally as a professional stylist, and designer, for the likes of Ralph Lauren and The Sydney Opera House, KA PAI offers solid creative project management experience. Sarah believes that life is too short to be dull and that our homes should be more joyful and reflective of their owners. As a commercial designer she is a believer in the importance of creating unique, memorable and magical customer experiences. 

SARAH BRUFORD | FOUNDER & CREATIVE DIRECTOR

Sarah is passionate about authentically colourful homes, artisanal handcrafts and sustainable design.  Her work is uniquely influenced by colour theory, global design, and textiles. Her philosophy is to embrace vintage pieces whilst highlighting the things you already own and love. She is a self proclaimed travel addict who has hunted traditional crafts, and their artisans, across the Great Sand Sea of Egypt to the vast Steppe of Uzbekistan. Her love of sharing stories and showcasing unique home decor is reflected in KA PAI's curated shop.
