Always Welcome finally has a home in Cape Town with the Always Welcome Heritage House opening in the city centre.
Forty of Africa's leading designer/manufacturers can now showcase a collection of furniture, lighting and homeware in one place. The new location of Always Welcome takes up two floors of an 18th-century heritage site on Shortmarket Street and is a carefully curated mix of pieces from the design collective.
Shoppers can find items from familiar design houses such as Dokter and Misses, Houtlander and The Urbanative, Kino, as well as emerging studios like Neimil, Deft, Node, and Ananta Studio.
Always welcome was established in 2020 and is a multi-brand design cooperative for creatives who sell a range of furniture, homeware and lifestyle objects. The Heritage House site joins the Johannesburg flagship store and the online marketplace as a space for discerning customers to browse unique products.
