A history of craftsmanship
Harris & Thurston was established in 2006 by Ian Harris and Stephen Thurston, and initially focused on handcrafted, high-quality wooden furniture.
Customers were impressed with the workmanship and asked for customised fittings, such as bathroom cabinets, benchtops, and inbuilt shelving and storage solutions – as well as bespoke kitchens and furniture restoration.
While the company still offers these bespoke services, the main focus is on custom kitchens in Kerikeri and the Bay of Islands area, as well as kitchen renovations. Harris & Thurston’s traditional values of craftsmanship and customisation remain.
When Stephen Thurston moved to France, and Adam Gibson took over his share of the business, working in partnership with Ian Harris. Together, they bring over 65 years’ combined experience to the business.
