About Canterbury Office Furniture

Canterbury Office Furniture is the customer facing, retail and solutions based component of our business. Our parent company, Douglas Furniture Ltd, has a proud and long history in the industry, manufacturing and selling quality office furniture since 1957.

A change of ownership took place in August 2015. New owners Howard & Robyn Nossiter are thrilled to be involved in the business and are supported by a well-respected and knowledgeable Team.

Established and respected

It all started out over 60 years ago with our first factory situated on Selwyn Street in Christchurch. Steady growth over subsequent years drove a need for enhanced production space, prompting a move to newer, more suitable premises on Coleridge and Brisbane streets.

Looking into the future and seeing an opportunity to better serve the Christchurch market, Canterbury Office Furniture (COF) was established in 1999. We now service a highly respected and valued growing customer base throughout New Zealand.

Following the Christchurch earthquakes, both manufacturing and sales, with showroom, relocated to a new site at 80 Hayton Road, Wigram. The combination of having both manufacturing and our sales Team on site enables us to work closely with customers. We take great pride in producing bespoke or tailor made products specific to customer requirements, however, also have the ability to mass produce “one size fits all” joinery.

More recently, the business has grown into providing a solutions based office furniture and commercial fit out service.
