Trojan Dining Table in Yellowwood

My passion and love of natural, aged timber and its unique character and unpredictability, is a great source of my artistic inspiration. I  endeavor to design solid timber furniture in a way which celebrates its raw origin and reveals its authentic beauty in form and finish.

Our approach is expressed in each of our furniture designs. Tradition, craftsmanship, and a love of solid wood – raw, polished, aged or indigenous – combine to shape our signature pieces. For three decades our skilled artisans have brought these designs to life to compose our collection of hand-crafted, iconic furniture.

Our collection is informed by a rich and varied heritage, and a well-proportioned aesthetic. Inspired by the designs of the Cape Dutch Settlers and French Huguenots, and drawing on Shaker-style simplicity, these traditions are reworked into unique, iconic pieces – some classic, some contemporary, but always showcasing the raw beauty of timber.  Our range has grown to encompass elegant, solid wood flooring and architectural fittings – custom-made with the distinction of quality to suit the most refined tastes.

Central to our philosophy is a commitment to craftsmanship – handcrafted, intensive work marked by quality and distinction. This belief relies on our artisans being dedicated not only to their materials and workmanship, but also in continuing a tradition which began over three decades ago.   As such, many of the 140 craftsmen at Pierre Cronje’s workshop are apprenticed by master artisans.

Our bespoke furniture and fittings celebrate the unique: reflecting individual style, while showcasing the singular character of timber. For truly exclusive pieces, our design teams avail themselves to work with our clients in developing pieces which exhibit the benchmark of hand-crafted quality.

Clients often want perfection, but art cannot be perfect and perfection isn’t art. Between the two there is a place of natural beauty.
