A before-and-after and new stock arrival

Found two of these old vintage chairs in need of some TLC, so re-caned and re-upholstered them and ....

..hey presto!  They've gone off to new owners who'll appreciate them for another decade or so.  I'll be getting another two similar chairs in a blue fabric at the end of the week.

Just arrived - these gorgeous chopping/cheese boards printed with pretty pictures - R350 can hang them up as art when you're not using them.

Hot to trot

I have 6 new chairs coming in tomorrow - they have been painted white and each seat has been re-upholstered and embroidered with a different quote.  I ADORE them and wish I could keep them all to myself.  But hey, a girl's gotta make a living...  R950 each

Every day I'm shuffling

Here are a couple of new products I'm selling at the store. Hopefully when I get back from NY they'll be sold out - which means that my trip will have been partly funded by sales, which may help to balance out the purchases I intend on making there!

set of 8 'toasty' coasters - R90 doing the Table Mountain coathooks in colours

Once burnt....

Always approve the quote before you approve the work...which I usually do..but these two one-of-a-kind tables are so unusual  that I think they're worth that little bit extra.....I'm rather proud of them

eco friendly art

 The new bamboo cut-outs have finally arrived and I spent yesterday afternoon hanging them up in the shop - they are made by a local couple who print images and pattern onto the bamboo and they're not only good to look at, but eco-friendly too.  We also have some colourful paper-mache bowls with fynbos patterns and of course the little robot canvases, which are selling like the proverbial hotcake.

Add more colour

Hello again!  Have some new bits and bobs in stock - the felt placemats in green and grey are gorgeous and look beautiful under white crockery.  The zebra canvas and green generic map are great colour statements in any room, and the white swallow light is a Brett Murray original.   The retro chair covered in Skinnylaminx fabric is one of a pair.

Just a quickie

A quick post before I leave for 5 days of relaxation in Vermaaklikheid.  I'll be sure to post some pics of the river and surrounds upon return. The new cuckoo clocks are selling well so far and I'm proud to display my new baby.  The second hand has a little mouse at the end of it - too cute.

It's blogging time!

It's been pretty hectic around here lately and I'm in a mad scramble to manufacture more stock - there seems to be a run on hanging chairs and sidetables.  It's the time of year for film shoots in CT and the ones with the big budgets don't even bother renting, they just purchase.  NOT that I'm complaining.  I've finally had a chance to take some pics around the shop of new stock and various bits that may or may not appeal. Enjoy x

I'm making these 'sandy' bookends that are selling pretty well

The Table Mountain coathook, now available in colours

lots to look at!

The grandfather clock is a vinyl, available is various colours - the idea is to place your own, possibly rather mundane, wall clock in the centre

Bedside lights in the shape of UFO's

Woven wall heart which lights up at night - also looks good with a red bulb. The cord is available in red, yellow, blue and green - and of course black and white.

These cute crochet covered vases in soft colours are beautiful in a group

It sure does..

Carved 'hand' bowl - gorgeous

New retro chairs in powder coated steel with natural woven seat, as well as my cutie pie log tables with legs in white - I also do red, blue and green legs, depends on what leftovers I have in the garage.

star doorstops

I made 5 woven coconut squeezers into a  light.  The leaf comes as decoration or horizontally as a coathhook - powder coated colour options available
