Kopanya Unit scoops more awards at Decorex Cape Town
Our Kopanya unit made its debut at Decorex Cape town at the beginning of May. The reception to the product was astounding – so much so we were awarded the Most Interactive Stand at the show. The crowds that gathered to watch our demonstration every 3 mins were enthralled, sharing their excitement on all platforms across social media. The era of multifunctional/intuitive furniture is here!

It’s always a good feeling to receive positive feedback from happy customers who receive their furniture. Here are but a few images of recent orders that we made, sent in from our amazing customers for us to share in their pleasure.
Winter’s coming – some custom couches and daybeds coming out the factory in May
The first dustings of frost have been felt here in the midlands, and obviously around the country too. Couch orders are on the increase – no doubt to move all entertainment indoors around the fireplace. The slatted trend also persists, moving from plasma units and sideboards to the couch frames too. A really effective way to give the wooden frames great texture and awesome lines!
Want more affordable hardwood that still retains the quality – Meet ASH
Due to the ever-increasing cost of quality hardwoods, we are constantly searching and testing different wood types to ensure we always offer the best value and quality possible. One such search has yielded an interesting wood that has a great future with Homewood.
White Ash (Fraxinus Americana), is also called Biltmore Ash or Biltmore White Ash. It grows best on rich, moist, well-drained soils to medium size. Because White Ash wood is tough, strong, and highly resistant to shock, it is particularly sought for handles, oars, and baseball bats. White Ash is a ring porous hardwood that is heavy, fairly hard, and very tough. Ash features a light coloured, nearly white sapwood; heartwood is typically tan or light brown; and is native to the olive tree family. It grows throughout the eastern part of the United States and represents about 3-5% of the total hardwood timber stand. Due to its naturally pale colouration it is the perfect wood to play around with tints as well as wire brushing to highlight the prominent grain.
