modern home in cape town


This modern house at the foot of the Table Mountain in Cape Town (South Africa) belongs to Sean Matias. This British director has created an original mixture between contemporary art, African influences and old Europe. In the living room (image above), the eye is inevitably drawn to the large painting by Conrad Boytes. One of the many art works from the great collection of contemporary art from the owner. The sofa is covered with a soft fabric flowers from Home Fabrics. Facing the sofa, there are two chairs ‘Louis Ghost‘ by Philippe Starck (Kartell).

The kitchen is equipped with furniture and accessories from the fifties bought in antique stores or found on South African farms.

A colorful palette brightens the dining room. Also this area is used to display works of art.
