Function meets decor

If you're a fan of the trendy 4th Avenue strip in Parkhurst, then you'll be pleased to hear that there's a new kid in town.

Decor hotspot Katrell recently opened its doors, and was one of the favourites at the always popular Christmas in July shopping evening. The products that shoppers will find at the store show how visionary design can elevate something functional into a work of art. The appeal of these creations is evident, especially for those who want to fill their home with furniture that is distinctive and of impeccable quality.

According to Kartell director Matteo Amatruda: “Kartell does not just make furniture. We create products that capture the imagination. We want to take your breath away.”


With over 60 years of history in product design and manufacture, Kartell doesn’t disappoint, offering a unique ability to unite technology, innovation and a contemporary aesthetic. Italian design is famous for combining flair and passion with quality and precision, and Kartell brings this ideal to South Africa with its perfectly-crafted furniture collection, available at the Parkhurst store, as well as the Cape Town outlet.

Kartell has always set trends instead of following them, employing cutting-edge research and collaborating with leading minds in the design world, such as Phillipe Starck, Ron Arad, Tokujin Yoshioka and Mario Bellini.


So if you’re looking for unusual pieces for your home, then head to Kartell to see for yourself. There are also a few new outlets that have opened for business in 4th Avenue, so it’s worth taking a stroll and seeing what’s on offer.
