  • Teak FAQ

  • Do you use Plantation Teak?

    Yes, all of our teak is plantation grown. Plantation teak is replanted after cutting to ensure the future growth and survivial of the trees.

  • Can I see teak furniture at your location?

    Yes, our warehouse and showroom is based in Papamoa, simply call first to make sure someone is there to look after you. We encourage viewings.

  • Does it arrive fully assembled?

    Yes - we ship all our pieces to the customer fully assembled except the table legs.

  • Why is Teak better than pine, cedar, Kwila or other woods for outdoor furniture?

    Teak is a tropical hardwood that weathers well outdoors. It has oils that prevent it from absorbing too much water. It doesn't split or crack, or get spotty like other woods. It does weather, but that just makes it harder. Teak turns grey as it weathers, but it doesn't get splintery - it stays smooth. Kwila is cost effective and has a high oil content, however Kwila is from the rainforrest and will bleed which looses it's oil content, it also results in stained patio's and gardens!

  • About Us

Heirloom Quality Furniture, the New Zealand-owned family business with great buying power

Furniture is very much a family-affair at Heirloom Quality Furniture (HQF).† In 2006, Peter Barrow moved his family from the UK and set up HQF. Then, he set about importing quality homemade mahogany indoor furniture and outdoor teak furniture from Indonesia, for the New Zealand market.

Peterís brother runs his own furniture business in the UK, as do Peterís stepbrother in Australia and a family-friend in Ireland. Together, they have considerable buying power and deal direct with the factories that produce the furniture Ė cutting out the middle man and ensuring competitive prices for a quality product.

How does Heirloom Quality Furniture stand out from the crowd?

Peter likes being able to offer his customers an alternative product to standard retail. Handcrafted mahogany and teak furniture is often out of most peopleís reach, and for many a custom made piece of furniture is only wishful thinking Ė but not with Heirloom Quality Furniture. HQF is able to make your designs a reality, with a popular custom made furniture service. Peter works closely with interior designers and craftsmen who are able to design and create a unique piece of furniture to a customerís specifications. From design to the finishing touches, Peter works hard to give his customers a superior custom made product.

HQF keeps its prices competitive and quality high due to an innovative business structure. Instead of retail shops with high overheads, Peter runs his business from home, using it as a storeroom, while the furniture is kept in a storage unit. The website is HQFís shop window!
