With its picturesque location on the Atlantic Seaboard and curated kaleidoscope of modern Brazilian decor pieces, Nosso is well worth a visit.
In a vibrant celebration of culture, heritage, and artistic craftsmanship, Nosso is the most recent addition to the Cape Town decor and design scene.
Nosso, the Portuguese word for ‘ours‘, was the natural choice for Julia Franco when naming her brainchild. “Nosso encapsulates the essence of this venture. It is about the heritage, culture, and passion woven into each piece we offer. These items tell stories not only of their makers but of people, civilizations, and the human experience,” she says.
Located in Sea Point, Nosso aspires to be more than just a decor store; it is a sanctuary for authentic, soulful pieces that tell stories – not just of their creators but of the individuals who inhabit these spaces. Each carefully curated piece is a testament to the craftsmanship and creativity of the talented artisans.
Julia’s fashion background and extensive travels in Brazil deeply influenced the store’s design. She worked with celebrated retail designer Haidyne Azevedo to bring her vision to life. Shades of indigo blue and coral provide a backdrop for a diverse array of items.
For Julia, this is more than a store; it is a seed for a big idea – a bridge connecting the rich tapestries of South Africa and Brazil. She adds with a smile, “We have so much more to offer than another grey room with a grey”.
She believes in the power of storytelling, a shared history, and the rich similarities between Brazil and South Africa, making Nosso’s offerings resonate with both.
You can find Nosso at 67A Regent Street in Sea Point or online at nosso.co.za.
