Guild Spe­cial­is­ing in col­lectable de­sign, Guild is the space where what you ad­mire isn’t nec­es­sar­ily hung on the walls. Spread across the 450-square-me­tre space, fur­ni­ture, rugs, cab­i­nets and lights are given their time in the spot­light, el­e­gantly blur­ring the lines be­tween de­sign and art. Grace­fully forged mild steel ta­bles by Gre­gor Jenkin, har­mo­nious light­ing by David Kry­nauw, the graph­i­cally cool drinks cab­i­nets by hus­band-and­wife duo Dok­ter and Misses are some of the haute, lo­cally made de­sign pieces you might find in­side, just steps away from the Zeitz MOCAA. Shop 5B, Silo 5, V&A Wa­ter­front south­ern­guild.co.za

Smith Stu­dio Wedged be­tween a craft shop and The Cape Gallery, Smith Stu­dio is housed within a 250-year-old her­itage build­ing that was rein­vig­o­rated by lo­cal ar­chi­tec­tural stu­dio Ur­bain Mcgee. The gallery is lofty and light and filled with the works of emerg­ing con­tem­po­rary names such as painter Banele Khoza, David Brits, who works in mul­ti­medi­ums, and cre­ative stu­dio Hoick. 6 Church St, Cape Town smith­stu­dio.co.za
