About Us


We are lovers of contemporary design and simple functionality.  We make innovative furniture, and beautiful accessories that add style to your nursery and enhance your decor.

We want the best for you and your baby – and we know a good night’s sleep is the best place to start.  As new parents you’ll have your hands full, so you only want the things you need and you want them to work.  And just because you’re starting a family and entering an amazing new phase of your life, doesn’t mean you are leaving behind all your good taste and discernment.

That’s why we started Fohfum.  We love good design and simple functionality.  We like making stuff and using our hands.  We have an eye for quality and attention to detail.  We produce good finishes and like to use natural materials.  We pride ourselves on creating honest products that are a pleasure to look at and a joy to use.

We’re a 100% New Zealand owned and operated business operating out of premises in Melrose, Wellington.  We work closely with a range of local suppliers to bring our designs to life.  We create beautifully simple nursery furniture and baby accessories designed for your baby’s comfort and safety - and your own peace of mind.

Our nursery furniture is about everyone getting a good night’s sleep - babies sleeping soundly, and parents too.  All our products will stand the test of time and fit easily in the homes of people who appreciate good design. 

Committed to safety

Everything we use in the manufacture of our cots is baby safe, from non-toxic paint finishes, to the natural materials used in our mattresses. The unique mesh sides eliminate the gaps and rigid bar sides of other cots on the market, while maintaining good airflow for a healthy sleep. The fixed sides make our cots safer and stronger because they have no moving parts.

Fohfum cots comply with Australia/NZ safety standards (AS/NZS 2172:2010)
