Focused on Craft

Sep 1, 2021

Since our inception, we’ve been crafting timber into beautiful dining chairs and tables for domestic spaces. As times moved on, we expanded into industries including hospitality and entertainment to meet the increasing need for specialised quality, functional and New Zealand-made furniture. Whilst the business has grown, our vision has always remained the same: crafting quality furniture.

Archer Hospitality furniture is lovingly designed and crafted in New Zealand with European design input that sets new standards in styling, quality, and comfort. Our focus on crafted furniture that helps flatter the aesthetic of your business, while providing comfort and functionality by continually creating beautiful furniture solutions for hotel accommodation, restaurants, bars, cafes & event spaces.

One example is through the creation of our timber tables. We are meticulous about the timber we select, exclusively working with solid timber which is durable and easy to repair. The beauty of solid timber is that scratches, dents, water marks, and other stains that furniture may be subject to in high-use environments are all repairable. Archer Hospitality guarantees all furniture against defects in workmanship and materials for 7 years, when used in situations for which they were designed for.

Once the timber is selected, it is cut to length and machined to size, in our factory before being hand-selected for grain matching and laminated together. Each piece is run through machines to ensure the wood is sanded and cut to the desired breadth and depth before being cut to the perfect size and shape for each of our tables. The table can now be assembled – but the process isn’t finished yet! Next up the table is polished and a 4-step finish process is undertaken including stain, sealer, sanded, and finally lacquered with our two-pack finish. All our timber tables are finished this way to avoid yellowing with age, protect the product well against liquids, and require very little maintenance. Finally, the table legs have special glides attached before the final product is packaged and ready to be dispatched to its new home. This entire process can take up to 10 hours per table – it’s a meticulous, time-consuming process required to ensure only the highest safety standards are met.

The capability to create custom designs, manufacture and produce in-house means we can continually provide excellent service and supply. Our Oskar collection is a classic example of our in-depth understanding of the specialised requirements for the hospitality sector. The newest additions to the versatile and Scandinavian-inspired occasional range are the Oskar Rectangle Dining Table and the Oskar Round Dining Table - both beautiful and stylish timber dining tables. Each feature softly rounded edges crafted in smooth ash, oak or beech hardwood timber creating a timeless aesthetic that will sit perfectly in any social space. The natural timber grain is a stunning feature bringing warmth and life to any café, restaurant, or interior…and being solid wood, it is also practical.
