Design in all its states


World Design Capital in 2014, Cape Town continues to churn out design and laud creativity.

Stable is literally a horse-barn's worth of design projects, where the best is on display. This store has close to 115 local brands that create everything from furniture to fashion accessories. You'll find bamboo school bags by Indalo Décor or coffee tables by Aiden Bennetts, who founded the project.

Also in the Woodstock neighbourhood, the studio and showroom of Haldane Martin, the top South African designer, is definitely worth checking out. His serpentine couch Songololo is a beautiful invitation to nap.

Next, head to Vogel at the Woodstock Foundry for a trip to a different furniture universe, where the all-wood designs are made by hand.
