STIL design gallery opened it’s doors in Franschhoek on the 31st August 2019. STIL showcases award winning South African furniture designers and product and is owned and run by Christine Goosen whose brand, Jacobs Collection is carried in the space.  STIL continues to foster the collaborative model that was started in Johannesburg at Juta 99 by bringing the best of South African design into a single space. STIL also carries exclusive product by Franschhoek designer makers Douglasbuilt and Coco Africa as well as works by award winning Johannesburg and Cape Town based designers, art directors and artists. All furniture shown in the gallery is for sale with the added value that, being run by the designers themselves, bespoke pieces can be conceived in house for clientele. The name STIL references the minimalism evident in the designed furniture and quiet, understated curation of space as well as nods to design guilds of the past such as the BAUHAUS and other collective schools of thought. It is important to the pair that the resilient and arrayed talent of South African designed and made objects have as much representation, support and opportunity and place insofar as is possible.
