Local Furniture Store and Mattress Company
In 1984 we purchased the Manawatu Kitset Centre in Church Street (down by the Fire Station in Palmerston North). Chris can remember assembling the furniture in the evening and delivering it to our contract painter before opening the store in the morning. In 1985 we moved into 133 Rangitikei Street as The Pine and Kitset Shop, installing our own spray booth and workshop area.
We stocked the Brandon Brand and Miami kitset furniture ranges as well as a wide range of solid pine furniture — both raw and finished. We had a team of guys assembling, sanding and finishing the furniture. We offered hundreds of colours and dozens of stain colours. We also had quite a range of native timber furniture at that time, but milling restrictions meant that the price and availability became too prohibitive for us to offer it any more
In 1992 we moved up the road to 175 Rangitikei St installing a much improved workshop and spray booth. In 1995 we re-branded to D'Zine Furniture as part of a retail group of similar stores.
2014 saw us leave that retail group and re-brand as Furniture Tree to enable us to leverage the burgeoning benefits of establishing an online presence.
We travel overseas regularly developing ranges with our suppliers. We have many 100% exclusive products which we believe are well made and represent great quality.
We are direct importers dealing directly with the factory - not with the middleman. We do have several New Zealand suppliers and importers as well to give an excellent mix of choice.
We specialise in individual pieces as well as suites. You can buy one bedsider or just a tallboy, a chair, a side table or a bookcase.
Alongside our furniture store, we also have our own mattress company, importing our own branded mattresses. We’ve now got a great range which compares extremely well with other stores in New Zealand.
Most of the furniture in our store comes flat packed, so delivery is easy and economical. We can easily arrange freight to any urban centre in New Zealand - and can quote to international locations or suggest other alternatives.
To all of you, from all of us at Furniture Tree - Thank you and Happy Shopping!
