Scatter It

Update the look and feel of your home without changing anything major (or breaking the bank on large chunky furniture pieces). Mix it up with bright and colourful scatters, in geometric or organic shapes, with these five scatters we love from local purveyors and designers.

Aperture cushion cover from Skinny laMinx

Pioneered by Heather Moore, Skinny laMinx is a Cape Town-based design company that’s all about mid-century style and Scandi-inspired pattern and colour – with a dose of African chic. Aperture is inspired by the beautiful patterns made by pierced brick and concrete brise soleil architectural screens and walls, evoking cool protection, dappled light, and the simple pleasure of a repeated pattern.
