Carrol Boyes is synonymous with ingenuity and excellence in design and unique utilitarian pieces of the highest quality, which is steeped in legacy and heritage.

Carrol Boyes continues to make an impact in the South African art, interior decor and design sectors through bespoke works of art, including best-selling and new pieces which adorn homes locally and abroad.

Carrol had a special talent for taking relatively plain and unadventurous utensils and transforming them into sculptured collectable items of heirloom quality. This vision has been successfully passed on to her design team, whom she mentored for over a decade, and who continue to create products after her passing. “I would like this brand to continue long after I’m gone. From a South African point of view, I would like to know that it remains a South African icon - that the South African public can be proud that we have created this brand that is sold across the world.” - Carrol Boyes

Quality craftsmanship is the hallmark of luxury goods, and Carrol Boyes prides itself on exquisite artistry and meticulous attention to detail in each piece. The Iconic Collection features sculpted aluminium pieces which are showstoppers in their own right. The latest addition to the range, Glass Bowl and Stand – atlas, is the epitome of functionality and design. An exquisite item that is both parts decor and serve ware, designed for inspiring living spaces.

The kitchen range welcomes a second striking iconic Bread Bin designed to be a highlight on any kitchen counter. Carrol's 'diver' design is a classic portrayal of the human form in a diving pose. The detailed aluminium sculpture figure doubles as the unique handle on the stainless-steel bread bin, which elevates kitchen storage to new heights. Unmistakably Carrol Boyes, Diver lends itself to bringing a touch of sophistication to the heart of the home.

Bespoke works of art from the Sketchbook collection are portrayed on the finest black satin porcelain, created with modern tablescapes in mind. The Sketchbook Black range includes kitchen storage pieces, lifestyle and decor products, dinner and serve ware as well as coffee, tea, and hydration accessories. The range further extends to interior textiles such as luxury cushions and cushion covers, a generous soft beach blanket and an oven potholder.
