Something Different is a house-hold name within the wedding and events industries with big names behind them such as former Miss World, Rolene Strauss and corporates such as Dom Perignon and Chevron. Specialising in conceptual designs and executions, with a love for out-of-the-box creative thinking and an eye for exceptional details, Something Different has always been a front-runner in the field of décor, design and pulling together concepts.
To share the love, the team at Something Different has recently launched their online store, Something Desired, where they can custom design any piece of furniture your heart desires. “When we receive a brief from a client, 90% of the time it requires custom-made items such as sofas, bar counters and tops as well as panels and chairs. We have created so many unique items, we just thought – why not share it with the rest of the world. My entire home – from couches to our bedroom consists of pieces made by the team.” Says founding owner, Kate Shepherd.
“Our online store has ready-made items available to purchase, but we want to encourage our clients to step outside of their comfort zones and come to us with a dream; and allow us to bring it to life!” adds Kate.
Kate weighs in on the creative execution of their latest designs and respective shoots. “We love colour, and play around with it more often than not; therefore, displaying our black furniture against the pop-art pastel backdrop was a no-brainer. The contrasting colours really make it come alive!” With the pink and yellow chairs – which will make any customers heart skip and beat – she adds, “The millennial pale pink ghost chairs are just so chic for any occasion. We are in love with this fresh, yet modern, shoot.
Kate almost jumps out of her chair when describing their small obsession with rich jewel navy and green hues. “We love the idea of the colour on colour and these darker velvet rich colours just feels so luxurious, with our touch of quirkiness with the lights and cutesy décor pieces. The colours have us all crazy with the depth, textures, greenery and elegance!”
All the items seen in their latest shoot are available to purchase.
