Mid-century modern furniture and art from New Zealand

We offer distinguished local and international design from the 20th century to today, with a focus on careful restoration and conservation.

Mr. Bigglesworthy offers premium mid-century modern furniture and authentic design classics alongside a curated selection of contemporary brands that share our values. Our gallery showcases a large selection of mid-century New Zealand designer furniture and lighting with a shared focus on Scandinavian, Italian and American design.

All the items we showcase have been carefully hand restored by our team of expert restorers. We take pride in knowing each item has been restored to a very high standard. Our pieces are ready to be taken home, admired, and loved for a lifetime.
Restoration is a time-consuming process that requires a deep understanding of the object, a respect for the materials, and a lot of experience. We take this seriously, that is why we have our own workshop and a team of expert restorers that specialise in mid-century design.

Our restoration process focuses on conservation and respecting the patina, history and stories that each piece has gained over it's lifetime. It's a fine balance with the goal to ensure each piece looks beautiful without removing the unique character that has evolved from a lifetime of use.
