Furniture Design: Jacobs Collection by Christine Goosen

WORDS Michaela Stehr

Cape Town-based designer Christine Goosen, a Design Indaba 2019 Emerging Creative, creates sleek, sophisticated furniture under her brand Jacobs Collection.

“At Jacobs Collection, we believe in beautiful simplicity,” says Christine. “Step into a world where functional design is an amalgamation of quality materials, careful consideration and comfort. This is a world where soft fabrics and tough steel cohabit and where their contrasts highlight their beauty. A world where line is king; where structural details are embraced and not hidden.”

Christine’s designs make use of texture and strong, architectural lines, from the steel frames to the stitching.

Each piece from the Jacobs Collection is locally produced and made to order.
