South African luxury brand Ardmore Design produces vibrant and elegant design ware for a global audience. Working hand in hand with sister brand Ardmore Ceramic Art, recent highlights include collaborations with French fashion house Hermès and a collection of wallpapers with celebrated British manufacturers Cole & Son.
Founded in 2010, the brand’s ambition was to translate the distinctive imagery and playfulness of Ardmore Ceramic Art’s extraordinary ceramics into exquisite lifestyle products. To date Ardmore Design has launched three fabric collections - Wonderboy, Qalakabushka and Zambezi - and produced sell-out bespoke furniture pieces that have found their way to the most exclusive addresses across the world, from Cape Town’s newest destination hotel, The Silo, to Kit Kemp-designed hotels in London and New York.
Taking inspiration from Africa’s fauna, flora and Zulu folklore, expect beauty, colour and whimsical storytelling incorporated into soft furnishings, tableware and furniture, all manufactured from the finest locally-sourced materials and shipped globally.
