Drawing inspiration from both architecture and nature, Douglas and Douglas launched their 2019 Ananas Collection, featuring a range of furniture and soft furnishings at Design Joburg at the Sandton Convention Centre.
Featuring a custom pattern inlay derived from a pineapple, they showcased to much success, their unique take on the current rattan trend permeating furniture design and the iconic furniture range of Michael Thonet.
We worked closely with the home owner to complete the interior decor of their new build home.
We worked with existing furniture pieces which had sentimental value to the client and made these pieces work harmoniously with newer pieces within a contemporary setting. Being a coastal home set on the north coast of Kwa-Zulu Natal, our color palette for the décor took its inspiration from the hues of the sea and surrounding greenery of the the beautiful Milkwoods.
Although the home is a new build, the overall look we wanted to achieve was that of a cosy lived in family home, which I feel was achieved, giving the spaces a laid back coastal living aesthetic.
