During these challenging times, we are proud to hold true to the ideals of authentic design, superb craftsmanship and outstanding customer service that have underpinned the Cruikshank name since our first piece was made in New Zealand in 2003.
Personal connection and long term relationships are at the heart of everything we do, so we are committed to continuing to work arm in arm with our customers, colleagues, craftspeople and suppliers here in New Zealand,  supporting each other so we can emerge stronger than ever from this temporary period of hardship.   
Being based in Queenstown, the majority of our customers are elsewhere in New Zealand and around the world, so working remotely is our usual mode. We are experts at communicating our designs via sketches and visuals (see our Bespoke Process for more information). 
If you have a project in mind, please call us directly on +64 27 4413434 or email us with your thoughts. 
Stay safe and well wherever you are.


I have been designing custom furniture for over thirty years, first in London before moving to Queenstown in 2002. My designs range from individual pieces of furniture for private homes to entire interiors for homes, lodges, yachts and hotels.

My team and I are passionate about creating tailor-made, long-lasting furniture. We start with discussions and quickly move to sketching concepts for discussion. Chosen designs are then developed into lifelike representations and precise drawings for deeper consideration. Once approved, designs are fully detailed then hand-made by highly-skilled craftspeople in New Zealand and delivered with the same high level of care and attention to detail.   

Every step of the process is carefully planned to ensure our customers know exactly what to expect terms of design, quality, price and delivery.         


My tried and tested classic pieces, designed to look good, work perfectly and endure, while sitting harmoniously in a wide range of architectural and interior styles.

Each piece is hand-built in New Zealand by expert craftspeople from top quality materials, to last a lifetime. They are individually built to order, so can be tailor-made and personalised.


With the exception of shoes, furniture is what connects our bodies with our physical environment. Well-considered furniture has a profound impact on the way we feel and how we experience our homes, workplaces and living spaces.

I work closely with owners, architects, design professionals, specifiers and builders to deliver exceptional custom-designed living environments.
