Wellington’s interior motives

Kirkcaldie & Stains is one of those rare New Zealand retail brands – the store successfully evolving and thriving not just for a year or two but for over one and half centuries.


From a small shop opened with a £700 investment and built out of the timber of a wrecked ship, Kirkcaldie & Stains has consistently maintained high standards throughout their history.


Although there was always furniture on their floor the store had struggled in recent times for the space with which to correctly position the products to make the necessary aesthetic impact.

The decision was therefore made earlier this year to open a dedicated furniture store, one where the various ranges had close to 800 square metres to spread out and show their style. The new store specialises in quality New Zealand made and imported furniture and furnishing accessories including rugs, lamps, mirrors, flowers,cushions and decor items.


The location on Thorndon Quay was a no-brainer – the area is already highly regarded as a leading destination for design furniture in Wellington and the expansion of the Kirkcaldie & Stains brand will further solidify this reputation.


As one of the major New Zealand made suppliers entering this space we have 43 individual pieces – chairs, settees and ottomans – making the trip to Wellington. This is an exciting time for the legendary department store, and we’re excited to be front and centre of the new development.
