Fashion is temporary, style is permanent

At the heart of the Mavromac and Gatehouse brand is an implicit recognition that people are happiest and most at ease when they are surrounded by spaces and objects that reflect their personal sense of beauty.

We understand that no two people have exactly the same taste in décor and design, and so we have curated a unique array of fabrics, wallcoverings, furniture and lighting that speak to the global interests of our clients.

At the same time, we never allow ourselves to forget that although our aesthetic is international, our roots are here in Africa. The result is an interpretation of the best of European design, reimagined to seamlessly blend with contemporary African lifestyle choices.

Our years of experience in meeting the needs of both individual clients and of the interior design trade have given us a wealth of knowledge from which to draw when making recommendations. We have earned the trust of exclusive global brands including De Le Cuona, Colefax & Fowler , Pierre Frey and Rubelli, among others.

As a distinguished lifestyle brand, we represent a last bastion against homogenisation and blandness. Each of our retail boutiques is a repository of curated pieces that inspires and delights.

Responding to and sometimes guiding the needs of our clients, we have forged lasting relationships with many interior designers, helping them to source the prestigious items they need to create beautiful spaces.

Proudly South African

The genesis of of our inhouse manufacturing facilities for Mavromac and Gatehouse furniture, was the desire to create oversized pieces designed for ultimate relaxation. Growing the furniture side through the employment of skilled local ironmongers, carpenters, French polishers and upholsterers is a small contribution to job creation and the growing of our economy, which has given us immense pleasure.. The Gatehouse look and feel revolves around comfort – perhaps the ultimate luxury in uncertain times.

Unique fabrics for a unique nation

Similarly, our Mavromac South fabric collection takes its cue from the colours and textures of the remarkable South African landscape. In combination with our take on European styles, these fabrics readily lend themselves to spaces that have a sense of history while looking to the future, and homes which have an authentic sense of place.
