About River Rustics

Crafting Quality Outdoor Furniture with a Personal Touch

At River Rustics, we pride ourselves on being a small, family-owned business with a passion for quality craftsmanship.

Continuing a Legacy of Craftsmanship

River Rustics was founded in Northland in 2009 by my Dad, Glenn Henderson. When he suddenly passed away in 2020, I decided to carry on his passion for building rustic furniture. Although my background is primarily in dairy farming, I spent countless hours working alongside Dad, learning the intricacies of craftsmanship.

While maintaining the authenticity and quality of River Rustics, I’ve infused my own creative ideas and enjoy the challenges of custom work. Our family business recently relocated to Hope, Tasman, where we continue to operate with the same dedication to quality.

When I'm not building or embarking on adventures with my family, you can often find me out hunting. My goal is to create durable, beautiful pieces that our customers will cherish for years to come. Your positive feedback keeps us motivated and committed to excellence!

Just had our third project from River Rustics delivered in time for Christmas and we couldn’t be happier! 3m outdoor live edge table top x6 matching bench seats. Leg bases were custom by (Raw Possessions of Silverdale) in a bespoke rustic/industrial metal pattern. Thanks Levi @ River Rustics 🙏🏼 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
