About Us

Read more about the Acorn story

Who we are.

It all goes back to 1997 when the Managing Director, Adrian Trewavas, decided to pursue his passion for fine furniture as a result of gaining 100% in Woodwork and Technology in School Certificate. Woodwrights was conceived and was soon to become the corner stone of something great, Acorn Furniture.

After a few years of exciting growth in the NZ domestic market, it became apparent that the NZ Agedcare and Retirement markets were in dire need of quality, specialised furniture.

Year on year growth and increasing demand for our quality products encouraged us to expand our range and satisfy the needs of the NZ Healthcare and Mental Health markets as well as the Agedcare market.

Acorn Furniture provides a comprehensive range of products that are guaranteed to enhance the environment of any facility seeking to stand out in its field!

Today we have hundreds of Agedcare, Retirement and Healthcare facilities around New Zealand enjoying the benefits of having partnered with Acorn Furniture as their preferred furniture provider.
