McGreals: Bringing custom design to office furniture

The possibilities are unlimited when it comes to office furniture and upholstery – that’s the message from McGreals. All of its products can be tailored, and despite what you might think, this doesn’t equal an impossible price tag.

“Coming back to work after Covid, companies are creating office spaces that are stylish and upmarket – creating friendly and comfortable environments,” says McGreals’ general manager, Bianca Peters.

To help New Zealand businesses and those working from home create these comfortable workspaces, McGreals is able to offer a wide range of custom office furniture and upholstery options – think soft-touch textures, new and improved vinyls, and leather-look fabrics on office chairs to match any corporate image.

McGreals’ furniture can also be customised to suit spaces outside the office, such as hair and beauty salons.

Affordable custom options

“Custom fabrics can really bring your space to life compared to the standard options that office furniture typically comes in,” says Bianca, who explains that while some custom selections are more expensive, McGreals has access to a wide range of finishes and fabrics within a surprisingly affordable price range.

McGreals’ sales and design consultant Jasmine Rabadan also points out that custom doesn't have to mean long lead times.

“Often our manufacturers can custom upholster chairs in five to seven days,” she says.

A selection of imported furniture frames and chairs are also available from McGreals, but can then be customised in New Zealand – ensuring local customers can have direct access to McGreals’ custom options.

“We work closely with our clients, as often lead times are crucial. Our standard lead time from start to finish is generally 15 to 20 working days if materials selected are in stock,” says Bianca.

However, if a certain fabric or finish isn’t available, there are plenty of other fantastic options to choose from.

With McGreals’ wide range of fabric options, office furniture doesn’t have to be boring.
We work really hard to make sure that we exhaust every avenue before we say something isn’t possible – which is not very often at all.

Endless choice

“We have a wide range of samples in our showroom to show our clients, or as an extended part of our service we can offer onsite consultations,” says Jasmine.

Working with different manufacturers, the team at McGreals is able to bring any design to life – whether that be customising the design or size of one of its existing boardroom tables, or even creating a unique piece of furniture.

“One of our biggest values here at McGreals is ‘never say no’. We work really hard to make sure that we exhaust every avenue before we say something isn’t possible – which is not very often at all,” says Bianca.

The experience and resources available to McGreals means that customisation isn’t only limited to office chairs and office desks – it extends to partitions, booths, soft furnishings and beyond.

“In the last few months, we’ve had an influx of people wanting to add colour and custom finishes – not just black, white and greys. There is such a great range of Melteca melamine finishes in woodgrain or even concrete looks – there are so many options,” says Bianca.

McGreals is a one-stop-shop that can help you design, customise and install your office fitout.

“The scope of what we can do is endless. Even when it comes to metalwork, if you like a particular frame, it’s likely we can make it to a custom size. Obviously the bigger the item, the bigger the cost is going to be, but the cost isn’t because it’s custom – it’s usually because of the size and material used,” she says. This makes customisation possible for budgets both small and large.
