The Saagsels & Skaafsels furniture shops, located in the northern suburbs of Cape Town, offers solid wood furniture at affordable prices to the public.
The range consists mainly of Oregon pine, Blackwood, Antique, Lime wash, Whitewash, Distressed, Dark pine, Sleeperwood furniture and Kelims from Afghanistan.
The Durbanville shop opened its doors in April 2004 when the owner, Reinhold Swart, left his career as a teacher after 23 years of service. He also found that the Brackenfell area had a demand for this type of shop and in May 2006 the opening of the second furniture shop was launched.
Due to the high amount of visitors from the Boland, a third shop was opened in Wellington. Shortly afterwards, a fourth shop opened in the Burgundy Estate, ideally situated to service the Plattekloof, Panorama and Bothasig areas.
By having the various shops, Saagsels & Skaafsels are able to service the entire Tygerberg area as well as Cape Town surrounds and the Boland. We look forward to seeing you in our furniture stores in Durbanville, Brackenfell, Wellington and Burgundy Estate.
The Swart family is Proudly South African and they undertook an epic tour through the country to show their support during the Soccer World Cup 2010. To entrench this the majority of the stock in the furniture stores is proudly made in South Africa!
