South African’s tend to have this nasty habit of thinking that they can have a go at just about anything! There is something in our culture that is all about can do/make do, plunge right in – truth be told, it is actually a little bit frightening! What I’m trying to explain, is how I suddenly got to be designing a furniture line for my lovely friends Joanne Lee and Ray Hallare, the young entrepreneur brother/sister team, that started an interior designer line of furniture out of their family factory in the Philippines.
Dowel Furniture's Gardner counter stools featured in The English Room's One Room Challenge Reveal was a wonderful collaboration of two like-minded brands. Both driving forces behind each company coming from a rich family history of furniture-making and interior design while also connecting through fearless design in the modern age. The result speaks for itself through a spectacular kitchen renovation with the Gardner counter stools looking absolutely perfect for the space.
We will be debuting in Interhall, the first floor of the International Home Furnishings Center, at booth 506. The showroom will showcase it both our designer capsule collections: Barbara Elza Hirsch for Dowel and Duncan Hughes for Dowel.
