This week, I had the pleasure of swanning around the mystical aisles of the boho-chic and decoratively-loaded Arabesque. If you’re looking for Nordic Minimalism, you’re in the wrong store. BUT, if you’re like me and you love a shop that forces you to slow down, drink it all in and get lost in the knick-knack detail of it all, Arabesque needs to get on your Retail Therapy List, and pronto!


This Girl-Power, family-run chain of stores has cool ceramics, crockery, candle holders, cotton throws and coat rails (and that’s just items starting with the letter ‘c’!) They’ve also got the most beautiful selection of printed tablecloths, beach bags, baskets, rugs, a quirky selection of serviettes and some wonderfully worn & weathered furniture pieces, to name but a few of our favourite things. Be sure to pop in if you’re looking for a unique and original gift for a friend or to add eclectic, interesting elements to your home décor. With branches in Cape Town, Stellenbosch, Somerset West, Mossel Bay & George, Arabesque has the Western Cape covered with their arty flair!
