Prepare your home for spring and give it a fresh look with these fabulous home décor and furniture products made with colourful fabrics with a variety of textures and 100% pure leather.
The Urbanative’s home-grown collection includes soft seating in the form of a generous couch and an architecturally inspired ottoman, including a modern take on an old-school quilt, says founder Mpho Vackier.
“All the other pieces have names that are inspired by the ideas of home in a multitude of languages from the African continent. The Urbanative explores the role of culture and cultural representations and visibility in modern societies while aiming to tell and retell African heritage stories through furniture and product design,” she says.
According to Audi Snÿman of Audi Snÿman Interior Design, upholstering the back and front of dining room chair backrests with contrasting fabrics and textiles creates an element of magical surprise within this well appointed dining room.
“The different textures of fabric absorb and reflect both the natural light as well as the lighting from the elevated bespoke chandelier, adding to a carefully curated and refined atmosphere. These custom-designed handcrafted pieces are tailored for comfort.
“For example, this beautifully crafted and customised occasional chair is upholstered with a luxurious patterned textile that offers an inspiring and uplifting contrast to the layered greys,” she points out.
Woolworths scatter cushions come in a variety of fabrics and colours, allowing you to add both texture and colour into your home. Woolworths also has different types of throws that range from shaggy sherpa to the famous faux fur and 100% polyester knitted throws that you drape on your
bed or couch. These come in a variety of colours that will blend well with the rest of your décor scheme.
