Established in 2014 as an online store, Bofred now have their very own brick and mortar space at 139 Albert Road Woodstock CPT. Be prepared to be blown away; with high industrial ceilings and raw brick walls, the store is quintessentially Woodstock and undeniably cool.

Tell us more about Bofred?
We like to think of Bofred as an ever-evolving, carefully-curated space.

At the core of our collection lies an appreciation for beautiful things, which is reflected in the workmanship and care that goes into selecting and creating each item in our exclusive collection.

We also tend to rely on our own personal sense of style and inevitably find ourselves going back to the question: ‘Would I want this in my home?’

What you can offer home owners? We create ‘feature furniture’ and pride ourselves on offering clients original, one-of-a-kind furniture pieces.

What are your most significant projects thus far? By collaborating with an inspiring organisation like ‘Sisters 4 Sisters’, we’re in the privileged position of not only getting to do what we love most (creating beautiful pieces), but also being able to support a great cause and contribute to the community.

What is your top decor idea at the moment?
Embracing bright and bold colour combinations.

What material are you most interested in? We love working with marble, wood and thick woven wools, and enjoy the process of restoring and repurposing elements to create the new, unique pieces.

What is your dream commission? We would love to design pieces for a small, intimate café or any commission that allows us to work closely with a client to personalise a space.

What is our greatest asset as South African Designers? We are surrounded by an abundance of different cultures and influences. As designers, we’re in the perfect position to collaborate with other creatives and share skills within our broader community.

Who are you inspired by? We are inspired by the incredible works of artists like Cy Twombly and Erwin Olaf while our interiors are influenced by great designers such as Jacques Grange.
