When it comes to furniture making, The Earnest Workshop embraces the importance of being earnest. Turning his back on a genre of easy-come, easy-go, founder Dan Gillingham looks to a bygone era, where a furniture maker was a craftsman, not a production line. TEW furniture is something to be treasured, cherished and handed down to subsequent generations; contemporary in style but ageless in quality.

Hand-made in New Zealand using time-honoured techniques, each piece tells its own story and has its own unique look, feel and personality; allowing it to become part of not just your home but also your heart. Sourcing the finest materials, TEW goes back to basics, taking the time to get to know the fabric, fibre and being of each new creation.

The result – pieces of art that will blend seamlessly into your life, yet that will stand apart for their individuality.
