About

We are George and Leigh, business partners of Strawberry Thief, based in Johannesburg, South Africa. We aspire for our furniture to be original, inventive, comfortable, and at the same time accessible – seemingly rare qualities in current furniture design and availability.

Working with master craftsmen and upholsterers we hone our designs and then create and manufacture our pieces of furniture – expertly crafted and evocatively upholstered.

We are inspired by beautiful design and rich and tactile fabrics exclusively manufactured and sourced globally.  These are then combined to make each piece of furniture desirable family heirlooms while bringing its owners a lifetime of pleasure.

Our first creation, based on a mid-century fully upholstered lounge chair, has proven to be timeless in design and our most popular chair to date.  Amongst other chair designs that we have developed are square framed over-stuffed lounge chairs, scroll backs and dining chairs.  Most recent additions to our collection include ottomans, upholstered benches and footstools.
