About Us

Our furniture is designed and manufactured in our workshop located on idyllic Great Barrier Island in the Hauraki Gulf. We use wind and solar power to run our machinery, making our workshop as eco friendly as possible. We have a strong focus on sustainability, using only Kwila that has been certified as sustainably milled and approved by Green Peace.

Construction

Our frames are designed with boat building principals in mind. We us 20mm ply and 2 x 3 h3 treated pine in our frames and use only stainless steel fastenings, staples and nails to make our furniture strong and durable in outdoor settings. All our joins are glued with epoxy resin for added strength. Our frames are foamed using special ‘Quick Dry’ foam which allows any water to pass through.

Cushions

Our seat and back cushions are made from high grade closed cell foams and we would suggest they are brought inside in heavy rainfall. You can have ‘Quick Dry’ foams used in the seats and back at a slightly increased cost.

Coverings

We use ‘sunbrella’ fabric, marine and awning grade. this fabric has a 5 year warrantee against fading and is waterproof. Colour range can be viewed in www.topfab.co.nz. go to sunbrella and then marine and awning grade.
