our story

OUR JOURNEY STARTED WITH

A single pencil.

Back in downtown Johannesburg 1981, we sketched our first sofa — The design was classic and built to last. Since then, we’ve spent every day perfecting our furniture for the modern home.


Our ambition since day one has been to create furniture that is luxurious, timeless, and functional — dedicated to the craft we continue to preserve our manufacturing in South Africa.
