Our story

Exterior Dawson & Co Parnell Building


In the furniture game since 1978


We’ve been retailing furniture in Auckland since 1978, and while much has changed over the generations, we’ve always been a family business in every sense of the word. 

Now run by Angus Dawson and his business partner Scott Fisk, Dawson & Co has grown from humble beginnings with only Atholl and his brothers in 1978, to over 16 today.

In 2015, we rebranded from Dawson's Furniture and opened our second showroom in the heart of Auckland's design precinct Parnell. 

The following year we launched our first in-house designed Outdoor furniture collection at the International Furniture Fair in Singapore, picking up several international retail partners from USA, Belgium and Singapore along with contracts for International hotel chains.

In 2018 we launched our first Outdoor collection in collaboration with Anthropologie in the USA which has expanded to 3 ranges in 2020. 

In recent years we have expanded our Parnell showroom from 750sqm to over 1200 sqm our curate interior and outdoor furniture and homewares inspired by the relaxed, New Zealand way of life, selecting international design partners that share our ethos for luxury, casual living.
