Soak Up Autumn’s Gentle Warmth with Homewood’s Handcrafted Outdoor & Patio Furniture

Soak Up Autumn’s Gentle Warmth with Homewood’s Handcrafted Outdoor & Patio Furniture.

When it comes to weather there’s no denying that we South Africans have it good. With plenty of sun, no snow and occasional rain, we have the best conditions in the world for outdoor entertaining. And this is especially evident in the way we socialise – hosting braais in our glorious green gardens and sipping a glass or two of something special around the pool while we catch up with those we hold dear.

But even in the context of wonderful weather throughout the seasons, we’d argue that autumn in South Africa is bliss! The gentler sun that we’d love to savour for hours and the near absence of rain make it the ideal season for outdoor entertaining and thus a season for creating special moments with family or friends.

To make these moments that much more special and uniquely South African, custom furniture manufacturers, Homewood, have handcrafted a special selection of outdoor and patio furniture to help you set the right scene for your entertaining.

Made locally, in the Midlands, and imbued with African-contemporary style, each Homewood piece carries its own unique story, sculpted in wood. View a seasonal selection of our favourite Homewood furniture – all of which can be customised to suit your unique space and style.

A Welcoming Weave

Happy Hour at Home

Celebrating South African Wildlife

As the abbreviated isiZulu word for White Rhino, the Duzu indoor and patio table reflects a solid yet majestic frame that brings unique life to your patio dining experience.


Curved for Your Comfort


The Imbiza Lounger is the ultimate piece to have in your outdoor furniture collection. Its contoured frame will immediately place your guests at ease!


Slender Seating

Bench Vilikazi Rounded 8mm

No outdoor furniture selection is complete without a well accommodating bench, and Homewood’s slender and sophisticated Vilakazi Bench couldn’t tie a selection together more gracefully.


Sitting Pretty

South African outdoor entertaining just doesn’t feel the same without some multi-coloured décor or furniture. And the Duzu Occasional Chair couldn’t be more South African.


Project Focus: Made for Hospitality

Featured here is the Imbiza Occasional Chair, in use at Cresta Mowana Hotel. Homewood crafted these chairs as a response to their brief of creating ethnic chairs for outdoor lounging areas. We think these chairs work perfectly to create a warm, relaxed and social space!
