It all started with a wild flower…
Specifically one I saw countless times on one of many walks in my sister’s new home in a village estate in Constantia in Cape Town. That’s where Proteas grow wild and are abundant. After a trip to Cape Town in Fall last year, I felt driven to bring a little piece of South Africa with me, better yet, create a capsule collection here on US soil, inspired by the wild-grown Protea flower.
It truly was a decade long dream to create curated products.
Discovering Home is my design philosophy. There is nothing more special to me than the story and character in a client’s home.
So, when I met Annie Damphousse through local friends and saw her textile collection, I knew she would be the one to help me begin this journey of products based on my story.
The Discovering Home Collection
a collaboration with Housse Studio
The first products we developed is a set of pillows in collaboration with Annie Damphouse of Housse Studio.
After photographing proteas, the colorways of leaf, sand, stone and ocean, inspired by the South African palette I know so well became the base for our Indigenious One and Indigenious Two pillow line.
Housse Studio uses all water-based eco-friendly dyes and captured the spirit of South Africa perfectly. This collaboration is one of hopefully many in the future. We can’t wait to share a piece of our journey in your home.
