Dovetail was formed with creativity and accessibility at its core. With owner and designer, Rochelle Derksen's, background and experience in architecture, all of our furniture products have been designed to be practical, beautiful and functional. We stock a beautiful range of products which stand proud on their own but can be combined in a number of creative and unique ways to form an imaginative environment. Our products are lovingly designed and created by hand or locally sourced #proudlysouthafrican
"We hope you enjoy and appreciate our products as much as we enjoy designing and making them"
_Rochelle and the extended Dovetail team.
KEEPING IT LOCAL
We live in a country with an abundance of talent, so it was our founding philosophy to support and work with local crafts- men and –women. Our furniture is all handmade by a local craftsmen and skilled carpenters Owen and Songezo, who also manages to employ a few others to teach them the trade and help manufacture our products.
We strictly use local suppliers and service providers as we believe local businesses can only survive and strive with the support of those around it - this support is needed to keep our cities diverse and alive.
PAINT AND MATERIALS
All the paint we use is lead free to keep our little people safe.
We know how much fun children have climbing and adventuring up, over, under and between our products, but please make sure your children are supervised at all times when using your Dovetail purchase as Dovetail cannot be held responsible for any physical damages to your loved ones. We use lead free paint to keep our little people safe, items are hand painted and some variations in colour may occur. Our items are designed for indoor use only and Dovetail cannot be held liable for any wear and tear or damage caused by especially rain or prolonged exposure to water.
