Furniture Friday: SNOB
There’s nothing snooty
about the furniture at SNOB. In fact, I am proud to introduce you to SNOB on today’s Furniture Friday post because this is one company that supports the South African artisan community.
Many of you may know SNOB furniture – the owner, Denise Zidel, has been featured in many design magazines (click HERE to preview a list) and has exhibited at top design shows, including IDS 2011 most recently.
SNOB serves buyers with the forward-thinking mentality of “art as furniture; furniture as art”. Denise proudly proclaims to hand-pick all furniture (accessories and lighting too) that SNOB sells. She encourages her customers to admire the quality behind the workmanship of the furniture:
“When you sit in their chair, admire their weaving, beading or handwork on the surface of each and every piece, you will feel the unique blend of colour and culture that I experience in my work every day.”
And now, time for some eye candy!
I love the organic forms and natural finishes in the products at SNOB.
Although many of the pieces are quite ethnic, they are simultaneously timeless and would look great as a focal piece in any contemporary or modern interior. If you’re in Toronto or the GTA, be sure to pop into SNOB on 388 Carlaw Avenue #202F for a view of the showroom. I’m sure there are a few goodies that you haven’t seen online!
