The latest edition of HOUSE AND LEISURE (Volume 5: RETREAT) features various items from Design Store.

The feature showcases the highly versatile 'Barry solid wood-turned stool', that can double as a bedside table, a side table, or as additional seating. The unique flowing design of the stool complements the warm bedside scene in which it's placed. The 'Lookbook' feature in the magazine uses the stool as a side table in a leisurely setting, highlighting the piece's flexibility. 

The piece also includes our mustard crochet pouf, which is made from 100% cotton. The pouf is a favourite item among kids and adults alike.

Our welcoming mustard tone pairs well in a range of domestic settings. The 'cosy corner' section in which we see the mustard pouf offers readers the chance to see the item amongst various complementary lights, tables, and pillow cases.

Thank you to the team from LOOKBOOK studio for including these Design Store products in your magazine - we greatly appreciate it.

Don't forget - Design Store offers free shipping nationwide, and caters to anyone in South Africa.

Design Store now makes it easier for anyone across South Africa to shop the latest issue of South Africa’s premier décor, design and lifestyle title House and Leisure.

The new format is a seasonally aligned quarterly, over 200-page journal style publication that celebrates slow content and is very comfortable on the coffee table. 

Our theme for our Spring 2021 issue is ‘Bloom’. We’ve taken the essence of the word and interpreted it both literally and figuratively. This issue is a celebration of individual style and personality – we highlight beautiful places and homes where the narrative is as much about the spaces as the people who live (or create) in them.

‘Bloom’ is also about bold prints, patterns, florals, nostalgia, then-and-now, gardens, greenery and colour. We honour our heritage through food, recognise the amazing things women are doing in various industries and get excited about spring and all the optimism and joy it brings by celebrating the spirit of la dolce vita.

Simply add the Bloom Issue during check-out. Available for delivery nationwide. 

Happy reading.

Volume One, the Escape Issue, is the much-anticipated relaunch of the magazine conceptualized during the midst of lockdown and created by new publishers LOOKBOOK.

In this, the first of a series of coffee-table-worthy collector’s editions, we explore what this new sense of awareness means in terms of a celebration of space."

This high-quality journal-style publication is available on a quarterly basis - maintaining a focus on seasonal trends.
