When it comes to holiday accommodation and dining, the setting plays a pivotal role in shaping the overall experience for the guests. While service, quality of food and amenities are all critical to the guest experience, the choice of colour palette and furnishings heavily influence this as well. As such it is really important that you consider these elements carefully when creating a hospitality space. Explore some of the projects we’ve worked on where our handmade bentwood furniture has helped bring to life the vision for these unique venues.
Bliss and Stars: A Wilderness Retreat Nestled in Nature
Experience the sanctuary of Bliss and Stars, a haven to retreat to, to slow down and restore through nature and all that is on offer there. The philosophy of the dining room is that of communal dining where meals are shared amongst people who can exchange ideas with one another and inspire each other. With their timeless design, the Kariba Chairs play an integral role in bringing guests together and ensuring their comfort while they delight in their meal and connect with other guests.
Swakopmund Luxury Suites: Coastal Opulence
In Namibia’s Swakopmund Luxury Suites, coastal opulence meets extraordinary craftsmanship. Woodbender chairs, including the Abbey, Riga, and Vuti, take centre stage, adding refinement and comfort to the lavish dining setting. Whether you’re unwinding in style at the end of the day or relishing a delightful breakfast to get it started, the combination of our chairs enrich the ambience of the dining hall, bringing effortless elegance to the dining experience.
Camp Canoe: Rustic Adventure Meets Exquisite Design
After adventuring in the Franschhoek mountains, at Camp Canoe, you end the day off surrounded by unique and beautifully styled interiors with handcrafted wooden furniture that blends into the design perfectly. Our Abbey Chairs play a pivotal role in shaping this space at Camp Canoe, bridging the gap between the enchantment of the outdoors and the sophistication and class of the flawlessly designed and furnished interiors.
Den Anker: Postcard Views and Warm Interiors
Amidst the vibrant V&A Waterfront in Cape Town, Den Anker positions itself on the harbour’s edge with picturesque views of Table Mountain. Our Vuti Chairs bring a warmth and sophistication to the interior dining space with their rich earth tones in the wood and leather. The thoughtfully designed restaurant and quality furniture make it a place where you want to settle in, get comfortable, enjoy the views, savour a meal and sample the vast array of beers on tap in great company.
Post & Pepper: Creative Cuisine in a Historic Setting
For the culinary connoisseur seeking a one of a kind dining setting, Post & Pepper in Stellenbosch, is a good place to start. Seamlessly serving innovative fine dining in an historic converted post office, Post and Pepper is a truly unique dining experience. Having preserved some of the elements of the post office the interior also celebrates botanical themes and is furnished with our Riga Chairs in chocolate brown wood tones and fabric, which enhance the overall aesthetic of the restaurant.
Mitera: Tradition and Innovation Interwoven
Mitera Umhlanga beautifully captures the essence of the Mediterranean way of life. From the moment you step inside, the ambience exudes warmth, relaxation, and a touch of coastal elegance.

The Abbey Chair is a testament to classic design that withstands trends that come and go. Their graceful lines and understated elegance make them versatile additions to a variety of hospitality interiors and was the perfect pairing for Mitera.
