Our Story


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. 

The home garage soon became too small and the hunt was on for a suitable building that would facilitate the growth ahead! 

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.

This was to be no ordinary furniture, but rather a specific range of products that offers form, functionality and  aesthetic appeal.

In 2002 Acorn Furniture made its presence known in the NZ Agedcare and Retirement markets. Our understanding of the unique ‎requirements of this specialized market soon began to expand as did our range of products. 

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. 

Alliances with suppliers in Italy, Europe,  Turkey, America, United Kingdom, Asia and our own manufacturing in NZ ‎ensures that our customers have access to world leading designs and products, specific to our 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! 

In 2016 Acorn Furniture made an exciting decision to re-brand in view of coming up with a brand that represented our great culture. We used a leading brand agency in Auckland who partnered with us to create a brand that was more personable, relatable, warm, fun, evolving and unique.

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

 And you can be assured; the vision extends well into the future with many more great and exciting developments planned!

With nineteen years behind us, we really know our stuff! Not only our knowledge and understanding of the market we serve, but the quality of service our clients expect and deserve. Our 100% customer satisfaction guarantee ensures that your experience and journey with Acorn Furniture will be one to remember.
