Meet the maker: Ferniture Scout

Est 2021, Blouberg, Cape Town.

Who is Ferniture Scout?

We are a family business as well as a husband and wife team, that began from a mutual passion for DIY and all that is décor. Through a process of discovery, we established our first products that are hand-made by my husband, Ian. 

Our name is a conglomeration of our two children’s names; Fern and Scout.

What was the idea behind your brand?

We hoped to produce quality products, at an affordable price, that were both cutting- edge in terms of current trends, durable and stylish while remaining appealing to consumers from all platforms. We use locally-sourced materials, and put an emphasis on waste-prevention in our manufacturing process by utilizing materials as effectively as possible.

How many people work for you?

We are at this stage, a 2 ‘man’ business. My husband hand-makes all of our products from the welding to the wrapping and I manage the administration elements.

What are your best sellers?

Our Pendant lights in black have to date captured the largest audience and are currently selling very well.

What is YOUR favourite product of your collection?

I love the Concha single seater. They are so versatile in terms of placement; working beautifully as both indoor and outdoor chairs – be it as dining chairs or patio café chairs, they add elegance to any space.

What to you would be the best thing about selling on KNUS?

We are so excited to have the opportunity to sell with KNUS as the brand oozes elegance, sophistication and quality and it is a wonderful opportunity to be associated with a reputation of this high standard.
