Bofred, a furniture design store located in Cape Town has launched a new collection that draws on the emotions and notions of 'home'.

Founded in 2015 by Christa Botha and Carla Erasmus, the duo have worked tirelessly to create a brand that sets itself apart with new and original products. 

Both founders come from a fine art background, which informs the collection which has been curated to reflect a contemporary design approach.

The Bask Bofred collection has been inspired by the textures and palettes of Durban and Muscat. 

'For Bofred, home is an eclectic mix of Durban, South Africa and Muscat in Oman. It's grainy deserts, soft oceans, foamy waves, wind-licked beaches and lime-washed buildings. Home is busy, dusty street corners vast swaths of muted earth. Thunderstorms. It's uniform cloudless skies, oases of saturated green and horizons cut by jagged peaks. Home is where our memories live and breathe,' explain the talented duo.

The meaning of 'home' to the founders can be seen throughout the Bask collection. 

'With the Bask collection, we focused on incorporating the shapes, colours and feel of our home environments into the design process, with evident ties to the various landscapes referenced.'

The collection is ethereal, drawing the viewer it to its timeless and effortless design look and feel. 

'Each piece in the Bask Collection is a unique recollection of a place and time. It's an ode to an environment that allows us to be, even when we're someplace else.'
