When you enter the Nzito store you'll enter a world of wooden wonders, African inspired natural furniture, and wonderful smells of the wax and oil used to finish the furniture and creative designs. Woods used at Nzito Furniture are teak, mahogany, mukwa and other exotic hard woods. Many of the furniture designs you will find in store have evolved over years.
All the designs were created 'in house' and are exclusive to the Nzito name. The latest ranges have a cleaner more modern look, with the same quality and attention to detail. You'll also find a lot of ideas for gifts and home décor. This range includes tea light holders, ornaments, coasters, wall plaques, lamps and lamp stands, picture frames, ethnic jewellery, chitenge bags, tea cosies and cushions.

Custom made joinery
Continuous research and development combined with their know how and design departments enables Nzito Furniture to manufacture virtually any custom-made wooden product. These include office furniture, domestic furniture, restaurant furniture, wall panels, bars, staircases and shelving.
Production and delivery
Nzito works with a large group of nearly 40 craftsmen who make original pieces each time. Furniture can be made for one-off venues like offices or restaurants, or for a group of lodges and hotels.
The team is managed by Nicola Swynnerton who is able to gather specific briefs from businesses interested in the furniture, manage the production with the team she works so closely with, as well as ensure delivery. Supporting fabrics and furniture details are sourced from within Zambia and around Africa.
Large orders are welcome, but furniture buyers need to be aware of the fact that lead times need to be managed carefully since each item is made by hand. Product specification sheets will include an indication of the expected construction time and this will be confirmed when a firm order is made with a 50% deposit.
