News and Trends


It’s the beginning of 2014 and many South African households with kids have been girding their loins for the start of the school calendar, and with that, the start of the school run. Grrr. For everyone earning their daily bread, this means a lot more traffic on the roads. Grrr. Grrr. When you get home and close the door though, it’s the little details that can make all the difference to your comfort and relaxation, far away from the rat-race outside. We think there’s really something about putting your feet up, so we've got some inspiration in the form of the pouffe. No home should be without one, or two, or three. Go on, treat yourself! We love: 1. Zigzag Patterned Pouffes, Tori Murphy's collection, £275 (approximately R4 900 - as seen in our HL Trend Report in the January/February 2014 issue) 2. Kiekie Design, Mr Price Colab Collection, price on request 3. Farm Jute Pouffe, Coricraft, R995 4. Nguni Patchwork Pouffe, Klooftique, R3 000 Text Michelle Hardie
