Hastings based cabinet makers Fowler Drummond & Waddell created some of the finest quality furniture available in New Zealand during the mid century era.
Fowler Drummond & Waddell were leaders in contemporary furniture design and production in New Zealand. They focused on high quality construction and their furniture is often defined by simple linear forms inspired by the Scandinavian cabinetmakers of the era.
