Whilst we still find inspiration in our collaborations with the world’s leading fabric designers, we’ve increasingly come to realise that here in South Africa, we have a pool of design genius and artisanal excellence just waiting to be tapped into. Appropriately enough for an interior design company, we started looking much closer to home. As a result, we’ve developed our own in-house design studios and furniture workshops – the genesis of our Gatehouse brand.
Today, when you purchase a piece of Gatehouse furniture, you’re not just buying a beautiful piece for your space. You’re investing in a South African success story with deep roots. You’re supporting artists whose passion has the power to move your soul – even when you’re sitting comfortably.
Every Gatehouse item has a story to tell – a story that was written in Africa and handed down through generations. A tale of attention to detail and quality, and of finding a new medium to share ideas about the meaning of beauty and the notion of home and sanctuary.
