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.

  1. I love it. This is a gorgeous piece. And that umbrella jewellery tray is fantastic! where did you get it?

  2. The wood is gorgeous and I love the little detail on the bottom. Awesome barter!

  3. That is quite possibly the most perfect console/tv stand I’ve seen. Definitely a great trade!

    I’d also love to know where you got the little umbrella jewelry dish :)

  4. What a heart-breaker! My heart is LITERALLY aching. I think this version of the side cabinet is better than any mid-century wannabe I’ve ever seen. You’re the luckiest girl ever. So badly wishing I was on your side of the world for my own Peggy.

  5. I love the cabinet… and I love the website you designed for her as well! So clean and simple with great details.

  6. I want that umbrella. It has to be the cutest catchall I’ve ever seen. So much personality!

  7. That is simply beautiful. I’ve been on the look out for the perfect sideboard for a while.

    The lamp too, is amazing – I need me one of them!

  8. The Peggy is a beautiful piece of furniture. Not to make you envious but Elizabeth Moss walked past me out of the cafe with her coffee last Sunday! She’s in town (Queenstown, NZ) filming Top of the Lake. I totally lost my cool

  9. The Peggy is perfect! Also really love those Panda Matryoshka dolls, they are amazing!! Where did you get them from?

  10. Miss Moss, I loved bartering with you – Peggy bought me the best looking website a girl could ask for : )

  11. Ah-may-zing! I’ve always wanted a midcentury style credenza, but they’re so damn expensive! I should learn carpentry, haha. Congrats on your new piece of furniture. She’s a stunner. :)

  12. Just lovely! Can’t wait to see more of your home. Love your design work for Monya – she is a talent.

  13. such a beautiful piece! and such a lovely home – can’t wait to see more! such inspiration for my future apartment

    Your new cabinet is looovely, and i especially love your up side down umbrella for jewelry and your little poster of ‘write more had written letters’.

  15. Beautiful! Sorry to add to the ‘where’s it from?’ questions, but I love your lamp and have been looking for a similar one – where did you buy it from/do you know any online stores selling similar ones?

  16. Lovely things & beautifully put together. Sorry, 2nd person to ask but where did you get your clock from?
    I’m looking for something similar.

  17. Hello there! i`m from a furniture web store and we`re always searching for references to showing some good inspiration to our clients. Got very interested in your blog and im re-posting this one on my company`s facebook. Hope you like it.
