Interior Design & Extraordinary Repurposed Furniture

Fabric Frenzy

We’ve been very very busy here at the studio. And that’s because we’ve introduced fabrics into our store. Injecting prints and colours by local South African designers to our Recreate products has been amazing. We love how the fabrics bring out a certain… je ne sais quoi

Come in and browse through some truly unique prints and be inspired. We certainly are constantly stimulated just by walking past our fabric wall.

Our talented local designers have created some truly gorgeous prints. Have a peek at their collections.

Fabricnation, Design TeamI Spy, Maradadhi and Quagga Fabrics

We reupholster, create curtains and cushions, make up custom lampshades… basically anything you can think of we’ve done or will do in these fabrics.

Give us a ring or drop us a line and let’s get creative!

Foreign Press

We’ve been featured over the pond, not once, but twice!

In the March edition of Dove and Ländle Magazin REcreate enjoyed a bit of a spread.

If you’re in Italy or Germany, do grab a copy from your nearest stockist and have a gander. Some brilliant stuff.

Woman and Home’s article Trash to Trend has featured us. Now available on the shelves of all major stores.


We’re in South Korea!

We have been featured in South Korean writer Changwon’s book published by Design Culture Magazine. It introduces recycled products to the South Korean design market. Excited to see the trend of upcycling gradually getting popular in the international design industry!

Sneak peek

I’m often asked in the shop what my home looks like and I must confess it’s a bit like the old proverb “the shoemakers children go barefoot!”

I have been doing some moving and shuffling at my home recently, some may call it DIY?!
