Posted by Ardmore Design onBack in December 2016, when we were getting ready to launch our Zambezi Collection, we decided to create a few furniture pieces to accompany the collection launch, so that we could exhibit our designs and fabrics as we envisioned others using them. One of these pieces was an occasional chair in the modern style, which has taken so to heart, that we've now had the chair upholstered in all four colourways of our afro-geometric Feather design.
Posted by Ardmore Design onWith Summer having all but overtaken Spring in South Africa, we thought a supplement to the Zambezi Collection was necessary, so in addition to our luxurious velvet cushions, we've added a selection of scatter cushions to the line-up made of fine, natural linen, featuring the designs from our Zambezi Collection.

Made near Johannesburg in South Africa, with incredibly high standards of workmanship, our handbags are proving to be true lifelong companions. We developed them with our Qalakabusha range, featuring spirited depictions of our effervescent local fauna and flora, and patterns inspired by nature. With full-grain leather handles and detailing, the bags are ready for lifelong journeys.
Posted by Ardmore Design onSince the launch of Cole & Son's Ardmore Collection of wallpapers, the designs have ended up in some stunning spaces, from a Harrods bar to Rand Club in Johannesburg. Founded in 1887, Rand Club was established out of the need for a place for distinguished visitors and residents of what became Johannesburg to call and be received at, during the early years following the discovery of gold in the area. The club has hosted two royal residencies, and lists many of South Africa's most distinguished names as its members. We couldn't be prouder that the walls of this famous institution have been adorned with wallpaper from our collaboration! (Photos included through the Read More link).

Our latest collaboration with French fashion house Hermès has been released. This stunning scarf, entitled Flowers Of South Africa, features a pin cushion protea at its heart and is an ode to beautiful African blooms. It is Ardmore's third design for the House of Hermès, following The Savana Dance, where leopard and monkey take centre stage, and La Marche du Zambezi, which is a gorgeous gathering of elephant, zebra, giraffe, crocs and leopard. Flowers Of South Africa comes in ten colour ways - can you choose a favourite?
