Pedersen + Lennard (Pty Ltd.) is the product of a crafty duo out of Salt River, South Africa. They describe their work as, “reflecting our fascination with South African craft and the clean aesthetic of our Scandinavian forefathers.” So, you get the best of both worlds! Neat, wicker-and-wood, ocean-and-sky inspired designs with those awesome Ikea-esque names, or vice versa (For example: in lighting, you can choose the Ingvar, or the Mugabe). Their clean site features both architectural sketches and elegant photographs of finished works against intriguing backgrounds.
The whole thing is a treat – check them out at www.pedersenlennard.co.za/.
Among my favorites are the Slip Lamp:
The Ingvar dining set:
And the chalkboard coffee table (TRY and convince me you don’t want one of these. I dare you).
