About us 

If you are a true connoisseur with a taste for flair and elegance, you are invited to enter our world of unique and exotic leather furniture.  

The Furnworld Company was established in 1999 by its passionate founder Armand du Preez who identified a need for exotic and superior quality leather furniture.  Gone are the days where masterpieces were passed on from generation to generation, in stead the market is flooded with ordinary, inferior and overpriced replicas of yesterday.   

After extensive research into customer needs and the desire to provide a product not matched anywhere in the world, Armand identified five non-negotiable principles: 

·        Only the finest quality full-grain leathers are to be used;                                

·        Nothing would  be sourced from companies implicated in cruelty to animals;   

·        Frames were to be constructed from graded wood and only by true craftsmen;

·        The product has to outlive generations                                                         

·        Customer service has to exceed customer expectations                                

Furnworld stuck to its principles and today it is one of the biggest independent retailers in South Africa.  The extensive range of leather furniture caters for all needs and our masterpieces are available at wholesale prices direct to the public without the involvement of intermediaries.

Leather is sourced in South Africa, home of the Ostrich, Cape Buffalo, Kudu and Zebra. The durable Kudu leather reflects the unique markings on the animal and enriches the character and overall quality of the couches.  All our leather providers are ISO 900 and 9002 certified and comply with accepted and ethical norms.  We also source leather from reputable companies abroad to provide in special requirements of our customers. 

In 2006 Furnworld International opened its doors in Denver Colorado to serve the American and International markets.  The Armand designed “Out of Africa” and Ostrich ranges proofed to be instant favorites and will continue to grow.  The range can also be viewed in the Aspen Sojourner and Mountain Homestyle magazines.   

Furnworld International will strive to provide the service excellence you deserve.  Whether your preference is Ostrich or a combination of other leathers, we will craft it to your specifications. 

Is it the elegant Zulu, the robust Sahara or the timeless Imperial?  The choice is yours!  

 

"Home sweet home"

Middag Almal (SA nou so sleg, is dit beter om te emmigreer?)

Dink jy aan emmigreer?

Ons ( Ek my pragtige vroutjie en ons baie kinder )  het n vakansie Tuin huis (Condo) in VSA en het n paar jaar agtereenvolgend (tot 4 maande van die jaar) daar gewoon. Het ook vertoonlokale daar. My doel is om buite landse valuta terug te bring na SA  Kinders gaan dan daar skool vir 1 kwartaal. In begin het ons dit vreeslik geniet en geglo ons sou maklik hier kan aanpas. Huis teen die hange van Rocky Mountians , in een van Denver Colorado se beste woonbuurte, Westminister ) en 30 min op “Interstate -70”  vanaf  “Love Land” ski oord. (met Aspen , Vail, Breckenridge ook naby)  GEEN MISDAAD, LOS ONS HUIS OOP INDIEN ONS GAAN FIETS RY OF TENNIS SPEEL!!!  Soos SA in die sewentager jare

DIT IS MOS DIE LEWE!! ……. OF IS DIT?

Ons het baie Suid Afrikaners ontmoet wat daar woon en interesant om te sien dat hoe langer hulle daar woon hoe meer verlang hull na SA. In begin is dit die wittebrood fase, en dan die realiteit   “Ek sal altyd n vreemdeling van hierdie grond wees” ..Dan begin die heimwee en verlange. Hulle sit vir hulle oogklappe aan en fokus op hulle loopbaan en dan depresiewe gedagtes.  Hulle hou potjie-kos kompetiesies in Texas en n rugby toernooi in Aspen met die ou “Oranja Blanja Blou” verbleik en al wat hoog wapper in die vreemde .Sonder Boerewors, biltong (slegs jerky, jig!!!!) of hoender vlerkies!!VERSKRIKLIK!!!!!! nagmerrie!!!

Baie mans word lamsakke aangesien hulle nou “House man” word, want vroulief  is verpleegster , dokter onderwyser ens en het “GREEN CARD”( antwoord vir die swart gevaar) gekry want manlief sou mos enige werkie daar maklik kry  en manlief is nou nie meer bereid om saam Meksikaane harde arbeid te verrig nie.

Ek het  in baie lande rugby rugby gespeel en het tot die besef gekom dat daar geen beter land is as net hier waar Jesus my geplaas het nie.  Dink jy aan weghardloop ? vergeet dit maar (jy gaan dit berou) en maak liewers n verskil daar waar jy woon-ONS DOEN EN ONS MAAK N GROOT VERSKIL . “Tired of Julius Mal lema ? Jesus is the answer!!
