Pipe Dreams

This new collection of furniture by Douglas & Company shows us how dreamy leftover materials can be 

‘The pure geometric assembly and plump curves of the collection evokes a playful dreamlike state, fitting for a not-so-fleeting daydream.’

Cape Town-based architecture and design studio, Douglas & Company, has worked on projects ranging from architecture and interior design, to the recent launch of Pipe Dreams. Using leftover materials, the collection consists of a Flight of Fancy daybed, Fools Paradise and Air Castle stools and Wishful Thinking bench.

Focused on creating elegant and functional pieces, the Douglas & Company studio enjoys working across scales to create elegant and functional pieces that are inspired by their interest in the tradition of building and making.

Wishful Thinking bench: Spruce cross-laminated timber

Fools Paradise and Air Castle stools: spruce cross-laminated timber and chip foam with optional leather seat
