About the Store
The Design Store in Auckland has being around for about 20 years and under new owners from April 2008 . We have three stores in Auckland with one at Wairau park on the North Shore, one in Auckland on Mt Eden Rd at Three Kings and a brand new store at the Apex Centre opposite Sylvia Park On Mt Wellington highway. Our intention is simple. "We make shopping for contemporary modern quality a lot easier and most importantly to you, less expensive"
The internet as we are all aware is becoming the key or best way to shop and we understand this is by the internet sales we do now. Let’s face it you probably work at least 10 hour days so getting to the shops isn't easy, and that’s if you work in Auckland! If you don’t live in Auckland, (maybe Bluff or Kaitaia?) it is even more to travel to us or another decent bricks and mortar store so hence our on line presence.
While you may not be able to buy a custom made suite on line (this we feel you will want to sit on first!) we are able to offer 20 years experience and can sell popular, well made, items you can just safely click on and buy.
These may be iconic designs, or a new TV entertainment unit to hold that new flash plasma or our popular barstools or coffee tables.
We have fixed the shopping problem by bringing our shop to you online at truly great prices.
A lot of effort has gone into sourcing top quality products from around the world including New Zealand, and for which we are proud to sell, guarantee and put our name on.
Our prices are extremely competitive and we only charge freight at our net cost.
Have a look around, browse our listings, we are sure you won't be disappointed.
And remember: "do it NOW because tomorrow IS TOO LATE"
Regards The team at The Design store.
