N O V E L L A is a contemporary Cape Town-based home & lifestyle brand, which started out of designer Marieke Goncalves’ love of all things textile and her never-ending desire to beautify spaces. The range draws inspiration, in part, from the organic geometry of African pattern and hand-craft techniques, and from the simplicity and subtlety of a contemporary, minimalist aesthetic, echoing her own design experience, gained both at the Design Academy, Eindhoven in the Netherlands, and locally at CPUT in Cape Town.
