Wolf & Maiden, Handmade Furniture & Products from Organic Materials

Since I’ve been out of the Interior Design Business, I haven’t been spending as much time on design and furniture research as I would have liked.  I really don’t know why, because I love all things beautiful, and good design, no matter what shape or form, inspires me.  Especially when it’s close to home…Proudly South African.

This morning while laying in bed and doing some iPad catchup reading, and listening to the non-stop rain, I came across an amazing blog site:  WOLF & MAIDEN CREATIVE STUDIO.

Says designers Wade Ross & Gilles Pretorius: “Wolf and Maiden was originally dreamed up as a response to the lack of consciously sourced and constructed goods on the market. In this day and age, with the ever increasing demand on resources, it became clear that a need has arisen to start producing goods that are made to last, using materials that are in themselves sustainable, with a constant thought on the afterlife realities of such goods. We’re interested in the way things work and how people work with things in the habitats we live in“.

Wolf & Maiden is an all encompassing Creative Studio that’s on a mission to improve the things and spaces we use every day.

What they do be:

  • Design and manufacture everyday items such furniture, lighting, home wares, hand-illustrated fabric, clothing, accessories, jewellery and stationery.
  • Bespoke pieces, interior design and decor and installations.
  • They also strive to empower up-and-coming craftspeople, designers and artists.  According to them collaboration equals innovation.
  • For those who are not natural born designers, but have great ideas, you can collaborate with them on your own design, whether it be a custom made, beautifully hand crafted object or new concept, they will design together with you and for you.
Just a few of my favourite pieces:
