who we are.
DKNZ is David and Kirstin.We are passionate about restoring, recycling and improving furniture that is no longer wanted.We bring our combinedKiwi and English design ethic to all the work we do.
Kirstin is super creative and loves to bring colour and style to each piece, making sure it fits with the latest trends, and your preferred style.Working with children in her professional life means that her approach brings a deep sense of fun (and patience!).
David is an engineer by training, so he 'fixes stuff up' and makes sure each piece is repaired and functional before creative flair is applied.
Both of us love the process of hunting down cool pieces to do-up, re-purpose, fix and have fun with.Mid century and Art Deco furniture peaks our interest, but we'll look at most things that have potential for being reloved.
If you have furniture that needs the DKNZ treatment, or you see something in our Work in Progress page that catches your eye, we would love to work with you on finding the right creative solution.
We undertake commissions for you on request, from simple to complex, from small to large.We can update your existing pieces to better suit your current needs, or source something bespoke from our contacts.
We will always agree on the style, finish and colours that meet your requirements, along with a price and timescale for completion.We use professional products and complete our work to a high standard.
Working with clients is one of the most enjoyable aspects of what we do, to create your dream furniture and exceed your expectations.
Please contact us at DKNZupcycle@gmail.com to find out more.
Very happy with my purchase!Was originally wanting another piece from them but it was sold out.David very kindly sent me different options and I was able to choose the colour finishes.Excellent service, beautifully restored piece, would recommend! - Tina

A real work of patience, this one, needing almost a complete rebuild.Originally a 70's style desk, we decided to re-purpose this to a media cabinet with style.We removed all the drawers and runners, built a new shelf underneath, before sanding and refinishing the lovely wooden top in a walnut stain.We used a dark grey on the cabinet body (one of our signature colours) to give it a presence.Sold very quickly once completed.
A fabulous way to repurpose old drawers.We've built several of these (including for our own use).We are able to take orders for these to suit your style, colour and measurements.Several types of drawers are available, so please contact us for more info.
Turning an old British army shell case box into a wine rack!An unusual conversion, but one that has created a unique product.Many of the original features and markings are retained, and it's got the authentic look and feel of just coming from the field.Fit for any man-cave or cool, trendy apartment.
Started out as a tired, beaten up old piece that had previously had borer.Once we'd made sure that was clear, we got to repair the fittings and replace the mirror.We chose a neutral off-white while keeping as much of the original wood colour as feasible.New owner is very happy with the outcome.
Another of our staples is bedside cabinets.Those on sale now are recent examples in slightly different styles.
We'd be very happy to discuss giving your bedroom furniture - cabinets, dressers, wardrobes etc - the love it needs to make it fit your current style, before you invest in a new set.
