Design Store is lucky enough to have a number of products included in House and Leisure's June 2017 magazine themed 'The Design Issue'. 

If you're the type of person to purchase magazines purely based on the cover's looks - then House and Leisure definitely gets this right, as I've purchased pretty much every issue during the last year. The monthly up-to-date and relevant design and home-focused content is simply a feast for the eyes. 

Douglas and Douglas' trendy terracotta planter and marble side table are perfect for the tropical-inspired room, while the popular cane chair is a must-have for the glamorous space. 

Design Store's exotic Nguni cowhide rugs fits into any decor theme in my opinion. 

Perfect Imperfect's beautiful tassel basket adds an eclectic touch to any space. These baskets are perfect for storing absolutely anything  and it makes for a very pretty toys basket too.

Thank you House and Leisure. :)

Paging through the October 2016 print issue of Home/Tuis Magazine this morning and yay! Spotted our popular colourful cane chairs amongst some other stylish stoep beauties.

The team from Home/Tuis have throughout the years always made such an effort to include and feature in their magazine mostly products made by local designers and artisans. A truly South African magazine and brand.  

The magazine makes the lifestyle that it 'sells' more attainable and real to me.

This is one of the reasons that Home/Tuis remains one of my most favourite home and decor magazines over the years. 

Thank you Home/Tuis for including some of Design Store's products in your lovely stoep feature.
