The A-List

Hertex recently joined forces with one of South Africa’s most talented up-and-coming interior designers, Donald Nxumalo, to produce The A-List, a collection that encapsulates Johannesburg. Featuring opulent vinyls, sheers and velvets, the collection is ideal for those seeking brave sophistication in their interiors.

Donald’s love for Johannesburg is evident throughout the collection: the energy and glamour of the city are represented by rich textures, metallic hues and glittering embellishment, ‘I love texture, as it adds a certain richness to a scheme. And of course, you can’t think of Jo’burg without glamorous metallic and sparkles.

‘I was drawn to colour combinations I wouldn’t normally use, like navy blue and acid yellow. Both work so beautifully together,’ he continues. ‘The wonder of fabric is that it allows anyone to experience luxury. Whether you cover an entire sofa or a scatter cushion, it allows you to completely transform a space and tap into a glamorous lifestyle no matter your budget, and that’s what I aim to achieve with this collection.’

The A-List is available at all Hertex showrooms nationwide. View the entire collection at
