Stokperd

you will remember Monya from Stokperd who made my Peggy cabinet and my Megan coffee table for me (yes, i named them after Mad Men characters). i sent her a few reference images and ideas and she knocked together these beautiful pieces in no time. those pictures are all from my old apartment  - i kinda miss that tiny place! and it was two years ago, unbelievably.

at the moment our current apartment is full of furniture, so there’s no space for something new… but as soon as the need arises i’ll be contacting Monya again. if she’s not TOO busy making new stuff. which she has been, as you can see on her website. i love these new desks that she’s been churning out. well, i do have a new studio space that needs future furnishing. WINK.

she also has a cool blog, and a category called House Envy with some local home tours. check it out!

Meet Peggy

i know i’ve promised that i would share some pictures of my (not so new anymore) home – but i am slowly getting myself together. a major step was procuring a lovely grown up tv cabinet. i knew what i wanted, but i couldn’t find anything i loved that wasn’t silly expensive, and the stuff i could afford was ugly. oh, so ugly.

then i met Monya, who was in the same predicament as me many times over – knowing exactly what kind of pieces she wanted to fill her home with but not being able to find those things in the shops (we don’t have IKEA here, guys). so she started having pieces made to her own designs… and from there grew Stokperd. Monya needed a website and i needed a tv cabinet – and that is how The Peggy came to be. named after one of my favourite Mad Men characters, of course.

long story short – if you’re in the Cape Town area & you’re looking for some custom furniture Monya is your gal.

edit: to answer the questions: [1] the door slides from left to right [2] the umbrella jewellery stand was a gift from a friend [3] the panda russian doll was also a gift, bought in china.

all pictures by me.
