Vintage Design Classics

Our love for contemporary design began with a passion for collecting rare and iconic mid-century modern furniture from the 20th century. Today we continue to collect and offer for sale premium examples of contemporary vintage furniture alongside classic design icons.

Our stock consists of unique one off items and is continually changing. We have a large selection on offer in our shared gallery and also host curated collections to showcase some of our favourite pieces. You can see our full collection online or in-store at the Mr. Bigglesworthy gallery. 


Mr Bigglesworthy - Vintage Design Gallery

Our gallery features over 200 m2 of mid-century vintage and contemporary designer furniture. It is a shared space that showcases both Mr. Bigglesworthy and Good Form products. Please join us for a espresso coffee from L'affare as you view our curated selection of high end design. Our focus is inspired by modernism and a constant striving to offer beautiful objects that will last a lifetime.




We are pleased to bring together a collection of vintage pieces which are out of the ordinary. Many have unique, playful details which represent the post-war design attitude. We’ve also brought in examples by designers who have achieved something remarkable and utterly simple at the same time. The setting is a 1960s home in Manurewa created by founding members of the pioneering Group Architects, Bill Wilson and Ivan Juriss.
