The Acorn Story

Founded on a view that the New Zealand Aged Care and Retirement industry needed quality, specialised furniture, Acorn Furniture provides a comprehensive range of products – each designed with care in mind. 

Designed and made in New Zealand.

Each piece of Acorn furniture is manufactured in our Motueka factory, crafted with care at every stage of the process. We take sustainably sourced solid timber, foam and materials to craft quality furniture that is functional, well-designed and made to last. 

Functionality remains a cornerstone of the Acorn design philosophy.

Acorn’s new look builds on over 20 years of technical expertise and extensive experience understanding the needs of Aged Care, Retirement, Healthcare and Mental Health facilities, residents and carers. As we look ahead, functionality remains a cornerstone of the Acorn design philosophy, with an underlying vision to drive design into specialist furniture solutions.  

"Quite a pillar in our journey was identifying the needs around design – quality, fit for purpose furniture that was functional, designed specifically for the aged care and retirement sector."
