We've missed out on a lot of rare and exciting pieces simply because we couldn't identify them. Here's a small selection of our favourite references so you can be in the know.

Mr Bigglesworthy - Designers Page This is our database dedicated to local heroes in the design world and a great place to start. If you'd like to add to it, drop us an email. At Home: A Century of NZ Design - Douglas Lloyd-Jenkins Winner of the 2005 Montana Book Award, this is the definitive guide to New Zealand design from one of the most respected architecture and design writers in the country. Webbs and Art+Object Catalogues Not only great photos and interesting articles, it's also good to have current estimates as price guides. NZ Furnishing and the Furniture Manufacturer - Breckell & Nicholls This rare gem was produced yearly during the 1950's and 60's as a buyers guide for furniture retailers. It's one of the best insights into our local furniture industry and an amazing reference.
