Well-made wooden furniture brings warmth, style and a bit of outdoor character into a living space. And of all the stores selling timber furnishings, one of the most trusted is Karongwe Rarewood Furniture, which specialises in what it calls ‘man’s oldest, yet most interesting material’.
Based at the foot of the Magaliesberg Mountains in Gauteng, this family-run business (owned by father-and-son team Tino and Dalain Roets), handcrafts furniture for the bedroom, dining room, lounge and office from a range of solid woods, with a special focus on indigenous African hardwoods like kiaat. As each piece is made by hand, they are all one-of-a-kind, and you can expect every facet to be made from solid timber, even drawer bottoms, cabinet backs and concealed components.
The company also uses traditional construction methods to help bring out the individual character of the wood and to ensure that your final purchase has beautiful grain patterns and ‘fingerprints of nature’.
