living paper: your reading just became shoppable

Although home is always at House and Leisure's heart, and decor inspiration can be found within its pages, our focus has evolved to innovation too – with the reader experience in mind. In an effort to bring some of South Africa's most stylish homes, products, trends and objets to life, we're making our pages shoppable. If you like what you see on the curated pages of HL, it's now possible to shop them. Use a QR reader (available in the App store or searchable on Facebook) in our October and forthcoming issues for a direct pathway to the product online. We’re closing the gap between the pages and the shops.

ready to shop?

You’ll see QR codes throughout the pages of the House and Leisure October Indoor-Outdoor issue, meaning you can shop the beautifully curated selection of products – styled, tried and tested by our editors and writers – right then and there. We also bring you advice from the experts in decor and design, which means you can cut the stress of decision-making and trust in our curation.

how does it work?

Once you scan the QR code on something you like, it will take you straight to our new online shop, where all the items are available to purchase via e-commerce. The products will be delivered to you by the individual e-tailer or retailer (for example, Weylandts, Superbalist or Woolworths). The benefit? You know that that item was chosen by us. You can shop the refined, most stylish clothing and the best beauty products launching in SA, all curated by our editorial teams. See it, scan it, shop it.
