Since our inception, we’ve been crafting timber into beautiful dining chairs and tables for the domestic industry. As times moved on, we expanded into aged care, healthcare, and retirement industries to meet the increasing need for specialised quality, functional and New Zealand-made furniture. Whilst the business has grown, our vision has always remained the same: crafting quality furniture.

Archer Care furniture is lovingly designed and crafted in New Zealand with European design input that sets new standards in styling, comfort, and flexibility. Our focus on crafted furniture that helps the care sector improve residents’ quality of life with safe and comfortable furniture solutions is especially evident through the creation of our timber tables.


We are meticulous about the timber we select. Solid timber is durable and easy to repair. Scratches, dents, water marks, and other stains that furniture may be subject to in high-use environments are all repairable with solid wood furniture. Archer Care guarantees all furniture against defects in workmanship and materials for 7 years, when used in situations for which they were designed for.

Once the timber is selected, it is cut to length and machined to size, in our factory before being hand-selected for grain matching and laminated together. Each piece is run through machines to ensure the wood is sanded and cut to the desired breadth and depth before being cut to the perfect size and shape for each of our tables. The table can now be assembled – but the process isn’t finished yet! Next up the table is polished and a 4-step finish process is undertaken including stain, sealer, sanded, and finally lacquered with our two-pack finish. All our timber tables are finished this way to avoid yellowing with age, protect the product well against liquids, and require very little maintenance. Finally, the table legs have special glides attached before the final product is packaged and ready to be dispatched to its new home. This entire process can take up to 10 hours per table – it’s a meticulous, time-consuming process required to ensure only the highest safety standards are met.

The capability to create custom designs, manufacture and produce in-house means we can continually provide excellent service and supply. Our Rico collection is a classic example of our in-depth understanding of the specialised requirements for residents of the aged care, retirement living, or healthcare facilities. The newest additions to the collection, the Rico Square Dining Table and the Rico Round Dining Table each offer a refined modern design that delivers high quality sophistication to any dining space.

With a slimline top design, stylish tapered legs and most importantly smooth edges, both tables are well suited to retirement and aged care living. Crafted in premium solid American Oak or American Ash and polished to a perfect smooth finish to highlight the natural beauty of the woodgrain, the range not only adds a dash of elegance to any dining area…being solid wood it is also practical.
