About Us

We are passionate about creating furniture that works with your space – comfortable, functional, and timeless. The Lounge Design team has been creating quality products for over 30 years now. Find out more about our story, and feel free to come say hello at our new Auckland showroom – where you’re guaranteed to find some interior design inspiration.

Our Story

Lounge Design was created (as many great Kiwi businesses are), in a garage and has grown steadily ever since. We outgrew the garage many years ago and have now built a company we're proud of. Under the new ownership of Brent & Sharon Milburn since the start of 2019, we are proud to give Kiwis the option to choose quality New Zealand made furniture when it comes to furnishing their home or business.

Who we are

We’re a team of furniture designers, craftspeople and interior design enthusiasts. Although our team is growing, the focus will always remain on true craftsmanship and authentic service – we’re friendly, down to earth, and love talking with you about your furniture ideas!


We work with strong, eco-friendly New Zealand timber for all our furniture frames, which is why we’re 100% confident in offering a lifetime guarantee on our frames. Our materials, including our foams and seat-fills, are sourced locally, and we have accounts with all major fabric houses – so through us you have access to every fabric imaginable. We can also show you a range of wallpaper options to help really visualise how your interior layout will fit together. Come view, touch, and imagine for yourself what’s possible with your living room or workspace at our inviting Auckland showroom.

  • We are a textile wholesale company which often requires the services of a re-upholstery company."
    "Whilst we have used numerous companies in the past, we now use Lounge Design exclusively to do all of our Auckland recover work."
    "Lounge Design has proven to be extremely prompt in getting their quotes back to us, work closely with us to meet the time restraints of the work required and their workmanship is exemplary. Costs, which are an important factor, are also very favourable."
    "We have no hesitation in endorsing Lounge Design to execute all of your furniture recover requirements."

  • "I’ve always thought that leather furniture needs to be considered in the same way that you need to think when investing in a pair of good quality leather shoes. Shoes like that need to be comfortable, stylish and made to last."
    "I have a many times resoled pair of Barkers brogues that I bought in the Midlands in about 1982 in the days when I played rugby for the Harlequins of London."
    "The Leather ‘recover’ job that Lounge Design have done on our sofa ticks all of the same boxes my shoes do and I paid full price for the shoes and the sofa because I didn’t want to compromise on quality…I got exactly what I paid for."

  • "I have employed Lounge Design on several occasions and found their workmanship excellent."
    "They recovered several couches and a wing back chair which I thought were ready for the tip but after initial discussion and selection of materials they went about refurbishing the items and the results were beyond expectation."
