built to last
His relationships with Knoll USA and other international design houses brought the modern classics of Florence and Hans Knoll, Harry Bertoia, Eero Saarinen and their peers to New Zealand. In the 1970s, Raymond introduced New Zealand to the open-plan office, via Knoll’s Stephens System.
Under his leadership – and with a name change in 1986 – UFL has attracted smart, creative people with vast industry knowledge, who love applying that know-how to helping our clients enhance their spaces.
Now as then, UFL brings you modern classics and contemporary trends to suit your project, large or small. We are a family owned business, where you’re treated like part of the family, not part of the furniture.
Whether for a corporate office, hospitality business, mass transit terminal, or educational institute, we can complete your interior fit out with lounge and dining furniture, office chairs, barstools, terminal seating and more. To suit your preference, application and budget, we exclusively represent renowned global design houses, design in house, and manufacture iconic European designs in New Zealand under licence. We also manufacture our own UFL designed product in New Zealand.
Impeccable, all-inclusive service: design support, product advice, planning and prototyping, installation and full after sales services and maintenance. From a multinational corporate HQ to a boutique bistro, a 3500-seat theatre to a single-counter airport – we have the resources and the people to make it happen.
Relentless trend seekers, we source both classic and avant garde furniture designs to deliver creative, functional and beautiful solutions that you will love. We go above and beyond to deliver on time and within budget, using commercial furniture that meets and exceeds the needs of your space and its users.

“The UFL team are prompt and helpful, and always willing to work with us to achieve the desired product or result. Perhaps one of the most valuable aspects of their service is their intimate knowledge of the products they supply. From design and materials, to performance and functionality.
