Bold & trendy

Make bold
style statements with quirky décor accessories for the home.

Create a centrepiece

“What better way to make a bold statement than with a beautiful centrepiece. Sculptural, minimal, clean lines … with curves, asymmetry and a lot of fun. Is it art or function? In this case, it is all of the above. The POD | Server protects your table during dinner parties and transforms into a piece of art when not in use.” – Michael Duvel, co-founder of FREM


Juxtapose pieces

“Boldness is often found in simplicity. This wall-mounted pot plant holder is a great example of a small piece that makes a big statement. Different vantage points reveal different personalities of the product; the bold stereotomic side view, juxtaposed by a thin profile on the front creates a floating illusion.” – Michael Duvel, co-founder of FREM


Have fun

“Your home space gives you the creative licence to
do something that’s totally unexpected. Quirky and decorative accessories and
deco objects are perfect for adding a personal touch to every room. Start off
by selecting items that resonate with your personal interests. If you enjoy
reading, showcase your book collection with a set of unusual bookends.

“For a more playful aesthetic, incorporate your love for your furry friends with adorable pet-themed décor or wall art. For a more practical approach, add unique table and wall lights to create a real wow factor that is both interesting and functional.” – Johann De Waal, marketing manager at KARE Johannesburg

Mix metallics

“Mixing metallics like chrome and brass can create a bold statement with accessories in your home. If you combine the two of them it creates a stylish, harmonious mix of elements that will have an appealing outcome. A splash of contrasting colours or texture would also make a bold statement.” – Donna-Lee Smith, marketing manager at Créma Design

Play with proportions

“If you’re looking to make a comical statement, dress your home in accessories that are more on the chunky side. If you’re after a more classic or romantic look, the sleeker the accessories the better. It all depends on the look and feel you’re going for.” – Donna-Lee Smith, marketing manager at Créma Design

Choose South African

“South African design has a natural flair that will bring some spice and excitement back into your décor scheme, but make sure to select something that resonates with your personal style. For me right now I’m loving pieces like the Coat Stand by young Gqeberha-based design studio Deft, that has curves in all the right places!” – Garreth van Niekerk, co-founder and marketing director at Always Welcome

Small statements

“Sometimes you don’t need to have scale in order to create a bit of drama, which is why I love the work by Inland Collective, who design large and smaller pieces for every size home that not only introduce colour and form with their mirrors, but also unique handmade textures in their application of handmade finishes such as gold leaf or other precious metals.” – Garreth van Niekerk, co-founder and marketing director at Always Welcome
