We love beautiful things.  We love the reaction of designers and their clients on receiving furniture that has been lovingly created especially for them.
We love our base.  Designers' Collection's Trade Showroom has been located at the beautiful historic Foundation Precinct at the very start of Parnell Road since it was first converted into a design destination over 30 years ago.
We gain inspiration and insight from the best interior and product design we see globally.  We take great pride in enabling New Zealanders to enjoy quality furnishings that are personalised to their individual tastes and lifestyles.
Our own furniture designs are made-to-order by meticulous craftspeople here in Auckland whom we have a very long-standing history with.  This enables us to provide you with great flexibility and short lead-times without compromising quality.
We are also privileged to work with some hugely talented international designers and manufacturers to give you access to a wider range of exquisite product.
Our team has been collectively working with design professionals for over 60 years and would love to help you with your next project.

EXTETA

In 2019, Designers' Collection became Exteta Outdoor Living's first distributor in Oceania.


Exteta's revolutionary philosophy applies the luxury mindset behind Italy's most prestigious interior brands to outdoor living. With Massimo Castagna as artistic director, Exteta's handmade-in-Italy range blends exquisite design with extraordinary craftsmanship.

In their own words "Exteta is not a collection, but a sense of lifestyle that offers continuity to the attention given to the interior, creating a harmony of materials, lines and functionality in an unexplored outdoor environment."

Exteta brings out the best design and transforms the outdoor into an all-encompassing experience of aesthetics and functionality. An infinite range of possibilities that creates a harmonious language of the exterior.

EDIZIONI DESIGN

Alberto and Paolo Sala with Federico Ferrari created Edizioni Design in Milan out of a common passion for design and architecture.

 

Their objects are minimalist, with shapes strongly linked to their functions, while the technology used is deliberately "lo-fi" and employs stones and metals with different and precious finishes.

The result is something that they call "naked design" - sleek pieces that are also evocative and full of emotions.  Designers' Collection introduced Edizioni Design to New Zealand in July 2019.

VENICE M

 

Melissa Lunardi and Massimo Tonetto are two designers who have being working with Murano glass and lights independently since the late 90s.

 

In 2013 they founded Venice M, a company that creates unique, hand-made lighting and custom-made designs for clients worldwide, mixing innovation and the great tradition of Italian craftsmanship.

 

Meticulousness regarding basic forms, design elegance, and attention to finishes outline the contours of the distinct, self-defining language with which artistic director Massimo Tonetto expresses himself.

 

VeniceM_AboutUs

 

Their simple recurring shapes never tire, but instead become timeless.  Designers' Collection were appointed New Zealand distributors for VeniceM in April 2019.
