• A friend told me about Curate on the weekend so i headed straight there yesterday.

    Based on the concept of a museum shop (always my favourite part of any museum trip if i’m absolutely honest), this is an emporium of both high brow and low brow delicious designer decor and gifts you’ll love.

    It’s situated in the Pierre Cronje showroom in Wynberg Chelsea and certainly is a sight for shop weary eyes. Lately it feels like i’ve been seeing a fair amount of the sameness out there – so hats off to the ever-talented Sarah Heinamann who has flexed her creative muscle and design savvy eye to curate a careful selection of things she loves.

    From original artworks to bright toys and artful phone covers, there’s a seriousness and a playfulness rolled into one here. You’ll find a great selection of ceramics (many from the lovely Michael Chandler),  a series of seriously lustworthy artworks, jewellery, kitchenalia, stationery and Curate’s own-design gift wrap if you’re there on a gift-getting mission. Oh, and look out for the Clinton Friedman umbrellas – just gorgeous!
