About Thesen House Shop
Established in 1997 by Regina van der Vyver and Jacqueline Lamprecht, Thesen House Shop is one of Knysna’s longest standing and most well-established decorating businesses. We offer our clients a wealth of insight and industry expertise built on years of experience and backed by a capable and professional team.
Our portfolio of local and international clients, many of whom have been with us for ten years or more, bear testimony to our high level of service and exceptional product offering. We pride ourselves on providing our clients with the highest quality soft furnishings and expert decorating advice tailored to each individual homeowner’s needs.
Our showroom boasts one of the most extensive fabric libraries in the area which includes a wide selection of import ranges, exquisite fabrics and high-quality wallpaper options. Sanderson, Mavromac, Romo and William Morris and are just a few of the exclusive brands that we work with regularly. This enables us to cater to a wide variety of clientele from hotels and guest houses to the most discerning high-end residential homeowner. We take great care in interpreting the needs of each client in order to create interiors that perfectly reflect the personalities of our clients.
Our factory is managed by the owners, ensuring consistent quality and careful attention to detail. All of our curtains, soft furnishings and scatter cushions are custom made by our team of seamstresses and upholsterers to the highest standard. In addition, we offer a procurement service for cabinetry, tables, chairs, benches, outdoor furniture and décor elements from leading suppliers around the country.
We often work closely with architects, builders and other professional contractors on renovations and new projects from the planning phase to ensure a seamless transition into the decorating stage. We assist with floor layouts, lighting, paint colour and flooring selections, cabinetry and technical details. This is particularly valuable to clients who are building or decorating remotely from other areas of the country or from abroad.
Our team of skilled decorators compile a portfolio of all the required information, mood boards and sampling and keep the client updated on the progress of their project every step of the way. We often arrange delivery, installation, styling and placement of every element of a home before the owners’ arrival making the transition into a new environment as stress-free and enjoyable as possible.
Our relationships with our clients are of the utmost importance to us and we strive to provide a service that is not only efficient and professional but also gives each client personal attention to ensure that all their needs and desires are met.
