However, I got really excited when I spotted these upcycled chairs from “HUNK” online – I just love the designer’s ingenious use of colour and studded trims to really modernize and reinvigorate the chairs:

I got even more excited this weekend when I discovered this exquisite piece, made by local gal Erin Bosenberg with her range called “edition1” that I’m now exclusively showcasing in my Johannesburg boutique… Not only is it bright and beautiful; it’s bright and beautiful in our very own Plascon paint! Hoorah! 🙂
