New Decor Store: KARE Now in SA

WORDS Mary Garner

German decor brand KARE has opened its first store in South Africa, located on Appel Road in Kramerville, Joburg.

“KARE is a brand that speaks to all tastes in interior design, whether crazy or conservative, they cater to homes, offices, restaurants, hotel rooms and lobbies,” says Joburg franchise owner Karin Cawthorne. “I’ve always been passionate about interior design, architecture and beautiful things; when I discovered what KARE had to offer, I knew that I wanted to be a part of their story here in SA.”

The brand, started by Jürgen Reiter and Peter Schönhofen in 1981, has opened a 1 000 m2 shop featuring its vast range of furniture, lighting and decor accessories. You can shop the entire KARE range at the store, including sofas, tables, tableware, rugs and beds.

You can also play with the KARE Room Designer App, allowing you to place virtual furniture pieces into your own space. The app even has a mode that lets you walk around, enabling you to view the products from different angles.
