Furniture designed with you, not just for you. 

Crestline’s 36-year-old story is one of ideas, creativity, and experimentation. They’ve been designing furniture in New Zealand and for New Zealand since 1987. Three generations down the track, Crestline brings a lot of good old Kiwi know-how to NZ furniture design.

An advocate for NZ design.

Established as a family business in the Waikato and now with showrooms in Hamilton, Auckland, and Wellington, ingenuity and integrity has made Crestline one of our most trusted New Zealand hubs for new and experienced designers to partner with, in order to create, test, and launch their innovative products to the open market.

Inspired NZ design.
Bud is a simple and versatile table designed to accompany soft seating and armchairs. The inspiration for Bud came from observing native Kahikatea trees and the way they shed their lower branches to produce long, straight trunks and beautiful buttress roots that stem and support the tree. The base is made from one tube that splits into three in an efficient and playful way.

Solution focused NZ design. Existing workstation systems on the market suffered from unsightly, unsafe, and ineffective cable management. Crestline’s brief was to design a high-quality, sustainably manufactured, workstation system with the world’s most effective cable management. The resulting Motiv3, with Clearway cable management is a fully resolved workstation and cable-hiding system that is tidy, safe, and easy to use. Motiv3 has been certified AFRDI Green tick and tested to quality standard AS/NZS 4442:2018.

“As a family, our value of New Zealand furniture is deep because innovation runs in our veins.

We love to partner with both the emerging and experienced New Zealand designers to help them bring their ideas to life. We encourage them to design furniture that is not only functional but also reflects the needs and desires of the end user. It’s part of our driving design philosophy ‘Furniture designed with you – not just for you’.

Our focus on sustainability and ethics from the early design phases right through to manufacturing also ensures that our products have a positive impact on our country and those who inhabit it. We are proud to represent a diverse portfolio of designers who bring unique perspectives and innovative production methods to our product range.”
