Sometimes the smallest tweak can make the biggest difference to a room. These three local businesses do more than simply tell us how to do just that … they show us. They’re well worth a visit.
Trendy and customisable patio furniture
Sipping sundowners on your patio after a long day has to be one of life’s simple pleasures … and so you probably want to create a unique space. You can do just that with bespoke furniture – or even just a cushion or two. Cue Ambesha Africa … a marvellous patio furniture manufacturer which custom-makes furniture, covers, cushions and upholstery to suit your style and space. The pieces are affordable, durable and – probably the best part – customisable. Even the briefest scroll through Ambesha Africa’s Instagram account and website reveals how many different – and rather trendy – designs this company can create. The process is simple … just call or visit the team to chat about your style, colour and measurements. Once the design has been approved (and a 50 per cent deposit secured), the manufacturing process will get underway. In roughly three weeks, your custom pieces should be ready for collection or delivery (at an added cost) to anywhere in Gauteng. Voila! Details: You’ll find Ambesha Africa at Unit 20, 8 Incubation Drive, Riverside View Ext 15, Fourways and online at ambeshaafrica.co.za or follow @ambesha_africa on Instagram.
