Side Tables by Lisa Swanepoel

WORDS Mary Garner PHOTOS Shavan Rahim

The rustic warmth of raw wood is set off with the sheen of lacquer in Lisa Swanepoel’s eye-catching side tables.

This versatile artist has designed a side table made of rough-cut wood and a high-gloss lacquer. She likes the way the high-gloss finish contrasts with the matte, cracked effect of the natural wood. “I love eclectic pieces that add an element of surprise to a room.”

The side table would work well in a home with minimalist decor, Lisa says, but also as a cluster in an upmarket public space in either one or a combination of colours.

Lisa, who has always delighted in using bright colours and intricate patterns in her designs, is currently working on variations of the gloss-and-wood theme and plans to add tables, benches and doorstops to the range.
