Africandy has launched!
Just spent half an hour pouring over the pages of this new SA online store – wow, what a magnificent collection of design and designers – all South African – such an awesome feather in the cap of local design!
Africandy is the brainchild of Chris van Niekerk and Pierre du Plessis, who saw a niche for a curated online emporium representing the best South African designers, so that cutting-edge interior design could become accessible wherever you are! No more do we have to wallow in despair when we see something amazing on a blog or in a magazine, because the store is not in our city – Africandy now showcases an amazing array of extremely talented SA designers – I mean take a look at these names – it’s the who’s who dahling!!

I also love that one of their priorities is to ensure that all products represented are proudly South African and that they are original, authentic products manufactured in South Africa using local labour in accordance with fair-trade principles.
They’ve got a gift registry facility too – aycaramba – brides be shopping!
