About Us image

Consignment is a concept initially developed by Wendy Francis-Ching with a history in sales and marketing, Melissa Bowman, creative director of Apartmento Furniture and Christopher Harrison, designer of homeware, lighting, jewellery et al. With a collective passion for beautifully crafted interiors, design, music and art, we embrace the idea of a space in which to commune and consume.

Consignment understands that we constantly refine and redesign ourselves and our environment, so our showroom allows for redistribution, recycling and moving furniture that benefits both the consignor and the buyer; our focus is on creating an exciting, original space in which to sell or acquire modern investment pieces at competitive prices.

We are able to come and view the items you would like to consign or you are very welcome to upload your photos by email to wendy@consignmentfurniture.co.nz or on our website - just click on Consign Now . . . it’s as easy as that!


We came from a place, a time when household items held a lifelong emotional attachment. Sometimes we hold on too long. Sometimes through circumstance we change and move on. These items, these things, no matter how beautiful, how cleverly designed or immaculately crafted, they are still just things. That's why we: Sit on them. Sleep on them. Eat off them. And of course, often just stand staring at them. So when you want to make space for something new, bring that thing you loved into us at Consignment.

"Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful." William Morris, Designer 1834-1896.
