At multi-award-winning furniture designer David Krynauw’s appointment-only flagship workshop and showroom, shop for minimalist furniture made with unusual lines and influenced by natural palettes. Alternatively jazz up the garden with a statement piece from Sarah Cronin Designs, whose hand-beaten metalwork designs, sculpted from pure copper or brass, include decorative metal flowers and water features. Each piece is inspired by indigenous African and South African flora with the copper left untreated to allow for a natural discoloration that evolves over time.
For beautiful hand-blown knickknacks, baubles and crockery, check out the Smelt glass studio and gallery, and for quirky home accessories, including one-off-a-kind handmade light fittings pop into Coote & Wench. The husband and wife team who run the Coote & Wench design studio are also a dab hand at upcycling vintage objects and found materials and their workshop-showroom is a fun place to explore.
