July news

Kiki’s is often top of mind for stylish home décor and gifts, but don’t forget that we have a wide range of furniture for you to choose from too. This newsletter will give you a sneak peek of what we have in store at the moment. We are also very happy to alter existing pieces, or design and create custom furniture for you.

One of our most sought after pieces is the Maxi Corner Sofa, which has found homes in many different shapes and sizes. In its original design it measures 3m 60 x 2m 45, but it can be made to fit your space.

I am very proud of our continuous supply of retro and art deco furniture. What has been an on-going trend in Europe, the United States and South Africa has now also reached our Zimbabwean homes. At the moment I have this beautiful Baccus Drinks Cabinet for sale, designed by Torbjorn Afdal in about 1955 in Norway. It’s completely original, with the stamp at the back.

In the same line of design we have another lovely server and this wild, striking sofa that could be the centrepiece in any room.

We have also had a bit of fun converting some African heritage into furniture pieces. Take for example this selection of servers: either Tonga doors from Zimbabwe on magnificent wrought iron bases, or a Congo chief’s bed made contemporary in white.

Antiques always feature in our collection too. We have dressed up some of the finds in fun fabrics, which give these golden oldies a brand new life. Whether as an occasional bedroom or bathroom chair, or an addition to your living room, veranda or office, these pieces will make you smile every time you look at them. Of course we are very happy to help you with re-upholstery if you would rather have a different look, and we can supply you with the fabrics too.

If you want a totally unique wooden piece of Zimbabwe then keep Gary Goss in mind. His tables, servers and benches have found their way to Kiki's from the very beginning and we have made many clients happy with his work in indigenous woods. 
Another favourite Zimbabwean master craftsman is Neale Morgan, whose designs have also been represented by Kiki's since we first opened. They give a contemporary twist to the traditional teak furniture pieces that this country is known for. We hope this has given you some inspiration for your home and hope to see you at Kiki’s soon.
