It is no secret that DECO is a fan of the CHURCH Suspenders, the gorgeous shelves featured in our latest Ideas Issue and our stand at this years Design Indaba. They are the first product designed in line with CHURCH’s new product manifesto – ‘make good design accessible’.

The Suspenders consist of three parts: the straps, the shelves and the mounting blocks. Hanging off heavy duty mounting blocks, the first shelf is inserted into the straps, connecting the rest of them.

I want to make high quality products that are affordable. To do this you need to do things differently – challenging conventional materials and methods results in exciting design.

Made from industrial strength plyester webbing, these shelves are sturdy and stylish and are currently available in black, yellow and red. We custom-designed ours in leather and they also come in a gorgeous cotton. The Shelves are made from Birch ply but also available in a host of different timber.
