During these tough times we are proud to hold true to our ideals of excellent design, craftsmanship and customer service that have underpinned the Cruikshank name since our first piece was made in New Zealand in 2003.
We believe in the power and importance of human connection and are committed to continuing to work arm in arm with our customers, colleagues, craftspeople and suppliers to support each other during these challenging times. 
Being based in Queenstown with many of our customers elsewhere in New Zealand and around the world, we are used to working remotely so if we can help in any way please rest assured you will be in safe hands. 


I have specialised in custom furniture design for over thirty years, first in London and Queenstown creating everything from individual pieces of furniture to entire interiors for homes, lodges, yachts and hotels.


My team and I are passionate about custom furniture - tailor-made designs hand built to last a lifetime. Initial meetings lead to sketch concepts for discussion. Chosen designs are then developed into lifelike representations and precise drawings for deeper consideration and fine tuning.  Once approved, designs are hand-crafted 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.         


These are my tried and tested classic pieces, designed to endure and to sit harmoniously with a wide range of architectural and interior styles. Each piece is hand-built in New Zealand by expert craftspeople from top quality materials to enable them to last a lifetime. They are individually built to order so can be tailor-made and personalised to suit exact requirements. 


With the exception of shoes, furniture is what connects our bodies with our physical environment and it has the greatest impact on the way we feel in any building.

I am often involved in the design of the interiors that my pieces inhabit. Whether a small cosy space or an entire interior, I focus on the people and the experience that the space and the furniture, objects and art create. I strive to create a sense of personal connection, warmth and belonging. 

I work closely with architects, interior designers and builders to create exceptional living environments and experiences.
