About Skara

Skara was created to solve a number of problems in the New Zealand office furniture industry.  

Convenient & affordable online service for full office fit-outs & bulk orders

A common problem with ordering office furniture online is that it requires assembly. If you are setting up an office with lots of furniture you can spend a lot of time and money assembling or installing your new furniture. A lot of our furniture can arrive fully assembled, saving you time and money while still getting high quality office furniture.  Skara offers discounts for bulk ordering and it a great option for a ‘low effort’ DIY office fitout. We also offer an office layout service where you can upload your floor plan and requirements for number of workstations, meeting tables, storage options etc. And we will supply a proposal and quote for bulk ordering.  This method of planning your office layout and bulk ordering office furniture online is a great cost-saver compared to an on-site consultation from an interior fit-out company & installation provider.

Consumer confusion about product quality. 

There are many quality manufacturers of office furniture and a range of great brands available in New Zealand. However most retailers that sell these great products also sell lower end furniture and don’t clearly advertise the quality of the different products. Purchasing from these retailers often results in the customer expecting all products to be of the same quality. We’ve heard may examples of businesses trying to fitout their office and purchasing high quality chairs (having experience with the brand they know is great), but being disappointed in the desks or bookshelves of a different brand from the same supplier. Many imported products aim to reduce weight/shipping costs which results in compromised quality. When browsing the Skara website you can rest assures all products listed here are high quality items. Warranty information is clearly displayed to showcase the performance of each product.

The Skara name

Skara-Brae was a neolithic settlement in Scotland dating 3000 BC. Houses and stone furniture were excavated at the site showing how early settlers interest in furniture regarding function and design are evident for our early ancestors.

Skara was born with the desire to bring furniture with function, design and creativity together into a modern way of living.
