About Us


Sitting Pretty's furniture is designed and hand crafted locally by Joshua Milward. A qualified engineer by trade, Josh's interest in furniture started after high school when he began to restore furniture.

Josh is inspired by past decades and his work incorporates motifs and patterns from the Art Deco and Mid Century design moments. Shapes are carefully considering to allow light and space to shine through.

Josh lives and works in his dream shed situated up in the country hills over looking the sunny Bay of Plenty. Drawn to the coast, he spends his days on the beach walking his dog Billy Moon with partner Rosie, who sews the upholstery for some Sitting Pretty pieces.
