Black Dog Furniture

Black Dog Furniture was born in a garage in Te Awamutu over 20 years ago. After making furniture for friends it was soon time to create unique furniture from banquet tables to bar leaners for ALL New Zealanders. Using environmentally sustainable and locally sourced timber, Black Dog creates furniture that lasts, is admired and treasured for many years. Hyper local in Bruntwood, near Cambridge, Black Dog chooses to use NZ resources- timbers, leather, hardware and local artisans, craftsmen, woodworkers, engineers, suppliers and manufacturers wherever possible. From the simplicity of the iconic Woolpress range to custom made hand crafted pieces, Black Dog won’t bark, fetch or roll over but it will sit and impress your friends.

Specialising in:

  • Fine Furniture: Sitting comfortably in so many homes throughout New Zealand.
  • Commercial Furniture & Fit outs: Restaurants, bars, cafes and retail premises throughout the country have been enhanced with the look of Black Dog Furniture.
  • Hire Furniture: We have been hiring our furniture for over 10 years now, giving every event, large or small the WOW factor.
