Gone Fish­ing

We love these fish plat­ters, R99,95 (large), and R79,95 (medium), from Woolies. Made of melamine, they’re just the thing for out­door en­ter­tain­ing. wool­worths.co.za

WHAT A VIEW

Sam­sung’s new QLED TV ef­fec­tively solves the prob­lem of where to put your TV. The AV and power lines are com­bined through the One Con­nect Box, an ‘in­vis­i­ble’ con­nec­tion where trans­par­ent ca­bling sim­ply dis­ap­pears. Bet­ter still, the screen can be en­abled to blend seam­lessly with the wall be­hind it. Set it up to play mu­sic, or dis­play your wall­pa­per, a paint­ing or fam­ily pho­tos. sam­sung.com/za

Globe Trot­ter

Jaipur Rose, the lat­est col­lec­tion from De­sign­ers Guild, is a cel­e­bra­tion of the ex­otic. In­spired by the pi­o­neer­ing jour­neys of 19th-cen­tury ex­plor­ers, it’s im­bued with no­madic glam­our. Printed on linens, plush vel­vets and cot­ton grounds, there’s also a co­or­di­nat­ing wall­pa­per col­lec­tion. Avail­able at Home Fab­rics, hf.co.za

Prac­ti­cal MAGIC

Joe Paine’s Stilt light clev­erly com­presses it­self be­tween the floor and the ceil­ing, keep­ing it in place with­out a base or fas­ten­ers. Win­ner of Best Light­ing at 100% De­sign at Decorex this year, it can be placed at any height or any­where in the room. R6 900 from joe­paine.com

It’s a wrap

Mungo’s soughtafter kikois are now avail­able in new shades, rang­ing from beachy blues and sooth­ing greens to rich cop­pery tones. These striped colour­ways are ideal for scarves, sarongs and tow­els mak­ing them must-have ac­ces­sories for sum­mer. South kikoi (pic­tured), R345, from mungo.co.za

FRESHEN UP

If you’re af­ter a fresh shut­ter-board feel, the Lou­vre Satin White wall tile is an ex­cel­lent start­ing point. With a glazed ce­ramic fin­ish, it’s the per­fect coun­ter­point to a Hamp­ton’s look of painted tim­ber and pale mar­ble coun­ter­tops. Avail­able at Italtile, italtile.co.za

DE­SIGNER’S WISH LIST

“I love this piece ti­tled ‘Keep on Walk­ing’ by Tharien Smith,” says Garth Wastie of Home Fab­rics.

“It’s a moody mixed me­dia with bright orange em­broi­dery in­spired by Cape Town. I par­tic­u­larly like the blurred re­al­ity of the sur­round­ings while the in­di­vid­ual stands out, un­touched.” Avail­able from sta­te­oft­heart-gallery.com Home Fab­rics hf.co.za

TRUE RE­FLEC­TION

If you’re af­ter a note of so­phis­ti­cated glam­our, The Crown Col­lec­tion’s an­tique mir­rors are an ex­cel­lent place to start. The ex­ten­sive range in­cludes or­nate gilded mir­rors, avail­able in oval, round and rec­tan­gu­lar shapes. Guilded ea­gle mir­ror, R14 500. 20 Bal­ly­clare Drive, Bryanston, Jo’burg. the­crown­col­lec­tion.co.za
