Today we would just like to focus on living rooms, particularly ones designed by some of our local top-notch creators. Why is that? Well, apart from being proudly South African, we also feel that living rooms don’t really get the attention they deserve.

Living rooms are there to help us socialise and entertain. They help us lower our stress levels and up our relaxation by calming us down after a long day. Plus they also help show off our interior-design skills by letting us combine various furniture and décor items such as sofas, tables, lighting fixtures and paintings – such fun!
