My love of natural, aged wood and its unique character and unpredictability, is a great source of artistic inspiration. I design and manufacture solid timber furniture, transforming it in a way that celebrates its raw origin and reveals new 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, producing a collection of hand-crafted, iconic objects whose distinction has attracted clients such as Rupert and Rothschild, Vergelegen, Luminance, Delaire Graff and the Cape Grace Hotel.

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. One of our many specialities is elegant, solid wood flooring and fittings – custom-made for your chosen space. Whatever your preference, every design is considered, and crafted to purpose.

Central to our philosophy is a commitment to craftsmanship – handcrafted, intensive work marked by quality and distinction. A true artisan is passionate not only about his materials and handiwork, but also about continuing a tradition. 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 wood. Designs are created to requested specifications, and the result is something truly exclusive.

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