Happy Monday lovelies! I hope you’re all well! I’ve been meaning to share this lovely local affordable designer furniture showroom and store with you for a while so i’m glad i finally got my A into G! Basis Furniture is based in Diep River in Cape Town and they’re the affordable solution for anyone who is vaguely into the Scandi look – they’ve go the lean lines, mid century-inspired, mono look down pat! The beauty is that not only are their chairs, sofas and tables really good looking and nicely priced – they’re great quality too! Owner Kyle Wilson has gone to the ends of the earth to source his wares and i guarantee you’ll find some pieces you’ll want to take straight home with you (you can shop online too)! I’ve done a little monochrome interiors inspiration mash up showcasing some key looks and some of their key items…take a look…
Basis has loads of sofa options – these two above are called Coco sofas and they come in at a really reasonable R4000. Perfect for a contemporary styled apartment and to set a mono scene – click here for more examples of sofas that Basis has for sale
Something to think about if you’re into the pared down and monochrome look is that to counteract all those straight lines, you need some round shapes – a rug is a good place to start – and so is a coffee table – like the Pip -it costs just R1800 and looks amazing, i have a crush on the grey one!
The Batman & Robin occasional chair set is definitely on my lust list!! It comes in the right neutral colours (grey and charcoal) and looks absolutely amazing – the fabric is beautiful too. I used it in a demonstration for work recently and people love it. it’s R6500 for chair and foot stool.
The Captain and i are in discussions about our dining room chairs at the moment. We currently have Louis Ghost chairs but my feeling is that we need to get some solid black chairs. I quite like these Katie replica Tolix chairs – they have wooden seats so aren’t as cold or industrial looking as the all-metal versions and they’re a darn good price at R950.
Here are some other pieces that caught my eye
The Jimbo 2-seater is R5250
These are just a taste of some of the really fabulous finds from Basis – if you’re at all into the Scandi look, take a peek – the fact that you can click and pay is such a bonus too! Oh, and be sure to check out their specials, they have some really fabulous marked down items too
