Weylandts, one of the country's top furniture and homeware stores, has been helping us all create stylish homes for two decades. The company has made its mark on the homeware industry in South Africa with its sophisticated yet approachable style and unique furniture. And one of the items that epitomises this is Weylandts' iconic Marconi sofa. 

With its bold, bulky shape, raw handcrafted finishes and meticulous attention to detail, the Marconi has stood the test of time – in fact, it’s become more popular over the years. So, to celebrate 20 years of crafted furniture and interiors, Weylandts is selling the Marconi sofa at the same price it was when it first launched in 1999.

'We wanted to say thanks to customers for their loyal support – and what better way to do it than with our most iconic sofa,' says Weylandts founder and CEO Chris Weylandt. 'Weylandts has always been about good, contemporary design complemented by the raw textures of nature. The unique Namibian desert landscape is what inspired us in the first place, and the colour of this limited-edition sofa is a homage to where we started.'

For the month of April 2019, the Marconi sofa will be sold in a limited-edition, full-grain leather finish for just R11 720. 

3 Reasons to Invest in the Weylandts Marconi Sofa

If the retro price tag hasn't instantly convinced you to snap up your very own Marconi, the sofa's quality features will probably do the trick.

1. Longlasting materials

The Marconi is covered in natural full-grain leather with a full aniline dye finish, which preserves the hide’s natural look and markings. Add a solid wood frame and high-quality deep padding, and you can see why this sofa is made to last for decades to come.

2. Handcrafted finishes 

Reverse seaming exposes tactile raw edges, while meticulous handcutting and stitching ensure consistency of quality. 

3. Design details 

With its instantly recognisable bold, bulky shape, deep-padded arms and back, and confident, laidback attitude, the Marconi is a modern classic.
