We’re inspiring generations to embrace an outdoor life, in style — by designing furniture that reflects Aotearoa’s beauty and endures her elements.

The Devon Way: we think the innovation and design speaks for itself. Behind that you’ll find the best raw materials, cutting edge construction techniques and a passion for outdoor living we bring to every piece of furniture made. We use only sustainably grown timber. After 47 trips around the sun, Devon furniture lives on.

Sustainability: Devon only uses timber from sustainably grown Teak plantations in Indonesia. A sustainable forest is a forest that is carefully managed so that as trees are felled they are replaced with seedlings that eventually grow into mature trees. This is a carefully and skillfully managed system. The forest is a working environment, producing wood products such as wood pulp for the paper / card industry and wood based materials for furniture manufacture and the construction industry. Great care is taken to ensure the safety of wildlife and to preserve the natural environment.

Design and Construction

We believe the value of a Devon table doesn’t rest on the table top. As with most things, it’s what’s going on underneath that counts, and for all Devon Furniture this includes construction that copes with the stresses of weight and movement admirably. Joints are designed to flex with the timber movement, and extreme weather conditions won’t contort the furniture thanks to quality materials and precision design.

Teak Timber

Teak is a durable tropical hardwood timber, regarded for centuries as the ideal timber for boat building and furniture making where strength and longevity are required. Teak wood will survive for many years outdoors with little or no structural deterioration, thanks to its highly water-resistant quality – it’s even repellent to insects. Devon’s teak furniture is finished by fine sanding and/or brushing. We then buff the surface of the teak to draw out the naturally occurring teak extractive. A coat of Devon Timber Furniture Shield is applied to repel water, dirt and to protect.

Fabrics and Weaves

All Devon fabrics are woven from weather-resistant, durable acrylic fibres to create a colourfast fabric that won’t fade, crack or tear. The same fabrics are used in many marine environments, such as boat cushions, so they’re made to stay cool in the hot sun. Our woven furniture uses recyclable synthetic weave, tightly woven by hand to achieve exceptional comfort and appearance. It is UV and fade resistant, ideal for our harsh New Zealand environment.

Our People

We’re a tight-knit team, dedicated to shining a light on New Zealand design and inspiring people like you to embrace an outdoor life, in style.
