With a wealth of travel and international experience in the hospitality industry and global sporting arena, both Jeremy and Conrad, founders of Summerlane, decided to explore a new world of experiential space, the world of bespoke, signature furniture manufacture – an obvious and natural evolution as they each share a heart for beauty, Africa and design. Summerlane, which started manufacturing in 2014, is made up of a small team, ensuring that every single piece gets the hands-on attention it deserves.

Pedantic when it comes to design and finish – Summerlane make use of only the most skilled craftsmen that share the Summerlane vision. These artists with decades of experience in upholstery and luxury furniture, join the Summerlane team, giving them an opportunity to do what they love – making beautiful things using their hands.

The story begins

An African romance between hide and wood, every individual piece of fine, hand-crafted Summerlane furniture tells a story. A story of nature’s timeless beauty.

Individually inspired

Each bespoke item is inspired by the hide and wood that make it. Individual markings of hand-selected, ethically sourced hide are what inform the design whilst indigenous African wood is masterfully carved to accentuate grain and colour. Each story is uncompromisingly told, finished to create a luxurious, signature Summerlane piece unique to the landscape of Africa.

This is to confirm that Jeremy & Conrad at Summerlane has supplied Tshokoma Enterprise (Pty) Ltd with furniture since October 2014 for various events that it has hosted. The furniture is of the highest quality, durable and aesthetically appealing. They are extremely professional and come highly recommended from our organisation.

We will continue our relationship with them for years to come and have asked Summerlane to supply us with their new pieces in September 2016

I have asked to see ‘the boys’ upon  my return to South Africa to commission 6 – 10 pieces for my property in Camps Bay, which is being renovated and in-part, turned into a boutique holiday residence for travellers from around the world. I have insisted that Summerlane leave their brochures in the residence, as i know that the quality of their furniture is going to attract many customers from my guests. In time, I would also like to see Summerlane pieces throughout my world-wide property portfolio.

We would like to thank you for the great chairs. Everybody loves them. They’re nicely made and gives our house the necessary touch of individuality with an African feeling. Exactly what we were looking for. We’ll have an eye on your great other furniture to come back to you one day – as soon as we find more space to place them.
