The Furniture Guild provides a bespoke furniture, fabric and accessories design service focusing on private residences and boutique hotels. Our items are manufactured exclusively in South Africa by local craftsmen.

About Us

01Bespoke Design

I have always loved colour and in fact my mantra is “Live In Colour” – not only in our surroundings but also the way in which we live! At The Furniture Guild we provide a bespoke furniture, fabric, wallpaper and accessories design service focusing on commercial and residential projects – large and small – and I have been lucky enough to work with and for many wonderful clients who have become my friends.  My aim is to make people happy with what they love and create beautiful rooms where each one can be comfortable within their space.

We are constantly developing new items in our range which changes with the seasons.  Our philosophy is to maintain an interesting and fun element to interiors, showcasing local talent.

The Furniture Guild has grown to include planning and visioning, creative direction, interior design, project and event management and a curation of beautiful interior accessories.

02Custom Made

Delivery within South Africa is between 4 and 6 weeks depending on orders and installations. All items are custom made according to clients’ specifications. In addition to this we have collaborated with a number of local manufacturers whose beautiful and unique items we sell online – thereby offering a one stop easy solution for your décor needs.

Interior accessories are sourced countrywide, using small businesses and individuals who depend on local designers for their support and livelihood.  Quirky and unusual elements add a different dimension to an interior,  and often the smallest detail creates the uniqueness.

0325 Years Later

With more than 25 years in the industry, Décor & Decaf @ The Furniture Guild in Durban, and a subsequent move to Johannesburg, we have grown to delivering creative concepts, often working with our clients from the inception of a project and seeing it through to reality.

Managing small bespoke events has also become part of what we do.  We provide integrated solutions for exhibition stands, including the design and build, thereby offering a one stop design solution.  More recently we have added another dimension to our stable – exporting an extraordinary selection of beautifully made South African furniture, home accessories and so much more to destinations worldwide.
