Behind the doors of a Edwardian-Tudor-inspired house on Cape Town’s Kloof Nek Road you’ll find the expertly curated home of local decor and interior design brand Cécile & Boyd.
Much more than a standard showroom, the home, and former creche, was originally designed by architect George Ransome. From authentic, faded wallpaper and original copper fixtures to decorative light switches, many of the home’s original features, circa 1906, remain an important part of the space.
Complementing these nostalgic touches is Cécile & Boyd’s extensive collection of furniture, lighting, soft furnishings and homeware.
Visitors are encouraged to explore all of the three upper levels, which make use of the separate rooms as opportunities to create complete looks, featuring items across the brand’s offering that work well in unison. In the basement, you’ll find a range of lighting, and to the side on the ground floor, a conservatory with a wide range of indoor plants and succulents for sale.
The showroom, located at 26 Kloof Nek Road, Tamboerskloof, Cape Town, is open from 9am – 5pm on weekdays and from 9am – 1pm on Saturdays.
