About Us


Hello (!) and welcome to Small Acorns – The Contemporary Living Store.

What is Small Acorns?

Small Acorns is not just another homeware and design store, it's home to some of the most lusted after and desirable goodies from around the globe. We feel perennially young, but actually, we've been on the Wellington retail scene for over 20 years now. Hard to believe we know! Small Acorns is modern and contemporary in style, with a classical approach to great service, and full of the jollies of life. Everything instore at Small Acorns is chosen because we love it and know our customers will too. We don't believe in following trends. We believe in personal style, designs that stand the test of time, and a room that tells a story. Our store is full of personal treasures, beautiful fabrics, upcycled vintage and contemporary design, infused with colour & a touch of eclectic whimsy. We'd like to think that Small Acorns is kind of like your favourite lifestyle magazine in a store. And of course, if you'd like a little (or a lot) of our style at home, talk to us about our interior design and styling services, or read more about them here.

Our team eat, live and breathe our brands and products – and are desperate to spread the word, so if you want a little guidance on your journey to find your new favourites, they'll be happy to help you become obsessed too.

Our customers come instore, take a deep breath, and constantly exclaim about how great our store makes them feel. We hope you can experience a little of that feeling here with our website! And because we love to talk about and share our inspirations, you might also like to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, our blog and Pinterest.

And, if you're able to come & visit us, you'll find us at Small Acorns, corner Blair & Wakefield Streets, Wellington 6011.

We'd love to see you!
