20 Years of Weylandts: Celebrating with the Limited-Edition Marconi Sofa


Weylandts is turning 20 and it’s selling its iconic Marconi sofa at the same price it was when it first launched. For the month of April, the Marconi will be sold in a limited edition full-grain leather finish for only R11 720.

“We wanted to say thanks to customers for their loyal support — and what better way to do it than with our most iconic sofa,” says Weylandts founder and CEO Chris Weylandt.

“Weylandts has always been about good, contemporary design, complemented by the raw textures of nature,” he adds. The unique Namibian desert landscape is what inspired us in the first place and the colour of this limited-edition sofa is a homage to where we started.”

With its bold, bulky shape, raw hand-crafted finishes and meticulous attention to detail — like the iconic reverse-stitching and natural markings  — the Marconi has stood the test of time. In fact, it’s become more popular over time. And with its retro price tag, it’s sure to become the centrepiece of many more contemporary South African homes for years to come.


  • LONG-LASTING MATERIAL: Made from a natural full-grain leather with an aniline dye finish (which preserves the natural look and markings) a solid wood frame, and high-quality deep padding, this sofa is made to last for decades to come.
  • HANDCRAFTED FINISHES: Reverse seaming exposes raw edges while meticulous hand-cutting and stitching ensure consistency of quality.
  • DESIGN DETAILS: With its recognisable bold, bulky shape, deep-padded arms and back and confident, laid-back attitude, the Marconi’s design has stood the test of time.
  • RETRO PRICE: Sold at exactly the same price as when it was first launched, the limited-edition Marconi is a deal worth celebrating.

The Marconi will be available online and at all Weylandts stores until 30 April 2019, while stocks last.
