#HLDiscovery: Home Essentials to Elevate Your Space

This is what is on our radar this week.


It's all about form and function on this week's #HLDiscovery list. We look at items (big and small) that you can add to your home to help make your life easier and more stylish. From the bedroom to the kitchen, this is what is on our radar this week. 

1. Magniflex MagniStretch 

#HLDiscovery | House and Leisure

It is said that we spend a third of our lives sleeping. Since we spend so much time getting some well-deserved R&R, we should ensure that the mattress we sleep on is top class. Enter the Magniflex MagniStretch mattress. Not only is is comfortable, it stretches and decompresses the spinal column while you lie on it. This helps increase the space between your vertebrae, increasing blood flow and releasing pain. Vencasa is the exclusive supplier of the Magniflex MagniStretch mattress in South Africa.

2. SoyLites Candles 

#HLDiscovery | House and Leisure

We all know and love SoyLites candles. They smell incredible and burn in a clean and environmentally friendly way. It turns out that they can also help you out in the kitchen. While cooking aromas are wonderful, some food items don't smell great during the preparation phase. The Rejuvenation moisturising candle helps remove these smells. It is scented with lemongrass, lavender and lime essential oils to cut through kitchen odours. As for those pesky flies that hover around while you are trying to chop your veggies, there is the Peaceful Summer moisturising candle to help keep them - and other pests - at bay.

3. Mobelli Riviera Indoor Sofa 

#HLDiscovery | House and Leisure

For years, the modular sofa was made to fit larger lounges, but things are changing. Modern sectional sofas, like the Riviera sectional set by Mobelli Furniture + Living, are bringing a touch of versatile, modern-day living to any size home. This allows you to reconfigure your room with ease when you want to mix things up and it also features removable covers so you change the upholstery as trends do. The sofa is currently available in Slate Gray.
