Dark Horse

Started in 2011 by husband and wife team Jarrad and Lise Nelson, Dark Horse is a high-end Cape Town-based design led brand specializing in furniture, homeware and accessories. We’re designers, makers and thinkers.

Our products are passionately designed and produced by our team in South Africa’s coastal Cape Town, a city rich in luxury and designer goods. We’re an alternative brand of design rebels who’ve proudly upset the status quo, offering bold designs without compromising quality or comfort. Our furniture designers work with local leather, timber and steel to create modern luxury decor that puts a modern twist on the classics.

We believe that the things you curate define who you are – It’s your journey and we’re passionate about creating goods that last and  that your allow story to unfold.

Dark Horse takes it’s name from a rebellious spirit – the adventurers, the misfits, and the ones who see things differently. We draw inspiration from a lifestyle of exploration and understated elegance.

We’re inspired by architecture, interiors, music and travel, great coffee, food and good stories.

Raw vs Refined.

Join us as we shake things up and challenge the status quo.

The brand works across hotel, restauant, commerical and private residential spaces. Counting Radisson, Marriot, More, Singita, Coca Cola, Levis, Janse&Co, Marble among many others as clients.
