Meekel Online Store

Online shopping is taking the decor industry by storm as an increasing number of brands start to sell their products online. The latest must-see website is Meekel, a special online space that showcases a very selective collection of design items. They have a strict policy when choosing which products to feature. Co-creator Kerry Hugill, explains, 'We might only stock one item by a certain designer because we hand pick everything instead of taking the entire range'. This makes every piece one-of-a-kind and truly unique, and also gives shoppers a great place to buy quirky gifts. Together with her husband, Bobby Hugill, Kerry has managed to create a convenient store where you can find superb South African design skill, ranging from rising talent to the more well-established names. It's also easy to navigate with three distinct sections – Homeware, Individual and Furniture – so you can browse according to category. Under Homeware you'll find various decor items such as cushions, linen, ceramics, lighting, artwork and more from the likes of Gemma Orkin, Aboda and Jesse Breytenbach. Individual products include an assortment of things like jewellery, accessories and fragrances from JoyaSkinny laMinx, Matblac and others. Those shopping for furniture won't be disappointed with selections by the likes of Joe Paine and Jared Odell. Bobby's mother's maiden name inspired the name of the online store, which they chose out of 'respect for her enormous passion for living life to the fullest'. We love the fact that they're making an effort to root out all the mass products and pinpoint the beautiful crafts that have been made with love by locals. Best of all? You can have your exciting new purchase delivered directly to your door. Visit meekel.co.za to see the gorgeous range of items or email info@meekel.co.za for more information.
