We at House and Leisure just love local design! That’s why we are so excited about the new STAD pop-up store in Jozi’s ever cool Braamfontein. The idea is that a select few of Cape Town’s budding creatives will be selling their wares through the pop-up store for only a few months. Bringing Cape Town’s design talent to Jozi, Dark Horse owner Jarrad Nelson is opening the store from September through to December. Designers include Dark Horse, Dear Rae, Mingo Lamberti and Lauren Fowler, Woven Ceramics and Diana Ceramics. Together they’ll be selling beautifully curated pieces such as furniture, art, accessories, homeware and jewellery. ‘Through STAD we hope to offer something exciting and dynamic to the incredible atmosphere in Braamfontein,’ says Jarrad Nelson, Co-Owner of Dark Horse.
