Welcome to Accent Group, where craftsmanship meets innovation.
Our journey began in 1996 when Chris Holt, with 15 years of experience at Otamatea Furniture, decided to embark on a new venture.
Setting up shop in Mangaturoto, Chris purchased sheds, laying the foundation for what would become Accent Woodlines.
In October 1996, we moved into our new workspace, crafting laundry tubs, planter boxes, and wooden model toy trucks.
As the wheels of progress turned, Chris welcomed our first full-time employee in 1997.
Our first major commercial furniture project came in 1996, manufacturing service counters for LG Carters. This marked the inception of our commitment to quality and excellence.
Accent expanded into contract furniture, birthing our first timber-edged brand, "Sherwood."
With a team of around 10 dedicated individuals, we started contract office furniture, to meet the demands of customers .
In 1999, recognizing the need for growth, we moved to a larger facility, adding extra factory space and Portacoms for offices.
The Holt family became an integral part of our story, Ronnie joining in 1997 as Director and now Accent’s General Manager.
In April 2010, we took a significant step by acquiring Otamatea Furniture, merging part of Accent's factory with Otamatea Furniture in Maungaturoto.
December 2010 marked another milestone as we consolidated from six buildings on three sites in Maungaturoto to one building and one site in Wellsford.
Fast forward to 2023, Accent stands tall with a team of 60 skilled individuals from the local area.
We take pride in supplying over 100 resellers across New Zealand, showcasing our dedication to quality and customer satisfaction.
Specialising in designing and manufacturing workspace furniture for commercial office spaces, we continue to evolve and innovate, setting new standards in the industry.
