A New Home For Chandler House

There is an exciting new addition to Church Street, Cape Town. Designer, Michael Chandler has recently opened the doors of very own Chandler House shop.

Visi appropriately described the little shop as a “rabbit hole” – and what a creative and magical warren it is!

Michael has meticulously curated a veritable wealth of desirable products to complement his own exceptionally exclusive and beautiful designs. The tiny shop is filled chock-a-block with gorgeous ceramics, cushions, Kenyan scarves, beautiful suzanis, art, antiques, and other collectibles.

Over the past couple of years, Rose and I have excitedly watched Michael’s development of Chandler House from a handful of designs to a growing collection of exceptional pieces that have now found a permanent retail home.

The aspect that we admire most about Chandler House is its distinct and unique identity. In a design climate where originality is a rare find, Michael’s love of Cape heritage has resulted in something truly matchless. His designs celebrate Cape Town’s history and culture, and as designers and proud Capetonians we think that is bloody marvellous.

Well done Michael, we cannot wait to see what glorious rabbit you are going to pull out of your sleeve next!

Be sure to pop into 53 Church Street when next you visit the Mother City. Until then, feast your eyes on these wonderful images or visit the Chandler House website and Facebook page.
