nm design's evocative new furniture range
Posted: 19 April 2017
NM Design recently launched her impressive new furniture range, A Matter of Time, at Cape Town's 99 Loop gallery. Revisiting the classic elements of Cape Dutch-style furniture in a clean and contemporary manner, Nelia's creations have a real sense of heimwee – an Afrikaans word that's quite difficult to translate but loosely means feeling nostalgic for something that may not have existed in the first place. Neem U Sitplek bench, with its elegant curved ends; the Versameling Van Laaie chest of drawers, which features a clever and quirky extended top; and the Skraal Kas, a tall, slim cupboard with beautiful detailing. Prices start at R2 170 for the covetable Melk Stoel, making NM Design’s furniture remarkably well priced given that the pieces will last for decades and complement a variety of interior styles.
