Every David Shaw piece is crafted to order in Christchurch for each individual client with care and meticulous workmanship.

    David still has a hand in every step of the process to make sure that only the highest quality is achieved and each and every piece that leaves our home will become a treasured piece in our clients.

    David’s daughter Amy has recently joined the David Shaw team to focus on widening the market and evolving her ideas to expand our current offerings, solve design problems, create prototypes to create design-led furniture to elevate the business to the next phase whilst keeping all the traditions from the past.Our philosophy at David Shaw is simple. As a New Zealand family-owned furniture business in operation since 1982, we know there is no machine that can truly replace the hand or the eye. Every David Shaw piece is crafted to order in Christchurch, with care and precision, by hand.

    At David Shaw we strive to reduce our environmental footprint by using quality local materials, reducing waste, and making furniture that truly lasts. Our core values are Made in NZ, For NZ. 

    Great designs are to last the test of time with quality that stands amongst the best in the world.

Our imported brands are some of the most prevalent from Italy available exclusively through David Shaw. David Shaw has been designing and manufacturing exclusive quality furniture for over 30 years.

    Specialising in exclusive, quality furniture David Shaw Limited approach their particular niche market of contemporary furniture with belief that their product is driven by their customers' desires. Just how David Shaw Limited achieves this flexibility of design and quality is a story in itself.

    David Shaw started on his own, 'which is great for controlling the quality of the product, when you do everything yourself '. This one man operation has become a sizeable company employing highly skilled staff. But even with this growth, David still has a hand in every step of the process to make sure that only the highest quality is achieved in every step. 

    The entire company at David Shaw Limited all work as a team. The company has a philosophy of low management with each employee taking ownership of their particular area, making sure that their part of the job is done to the highest possible standard ready for the next step. Even to the point where each person involved in the design and construction of any single piece of furniture personally 'signs off' the final article.

    This quality check at every stage of the process, and a personal commitment from the line ensures that each piece of furniture can be given a ten year guarantee. David Shaw calls it the 'Passport to Quality'.

    The other side of David Shaw Limited's quality management is in the form of investment in staff. David believes, as many successful companies do, that people are his greatest asset. Following this belief, staff training and education is very important to the company. The results are clearly seen in improved staff attitude, and work throughput. Intensive staff training creates multiple skills in the David Shaw Limited company.

    While quality can be seen as a result of great personnel management, David Shaw Limited operates state of the art machinery ensuring the best possible accuracy in the finished furniture.
