Put down the Pantone swatch and set your watch. Tomorrow – Friday 15th November – homewares and décor destination, Weylandts opens in Abbotsford, and potentially solves many of your styling quandaries.

Hailing from South Africa, Weylandts was established in 1964 and has gone on to become known for its contemporary quality and internationally curated designs that fuse raw materials with modern design and sustainable techniques.

Not one to follow the cookie-cutting ethic of blah-blah cushions and so-so couches, the Weylandts store will offer 4000 square metre of globally sourced, affordable products.
"I've always believed in beautiful products that have longevity and the Weylandts team has scoured markets globally to provide Australians with an alternative to mass-produced disposable products," says CEO, Chris Weylandt. "We buy what we love and not what we think will be a best seller. That's always been our philosophy and the secret to our success."

Think designer at mass-market prices. So whether you are accessorising an apartment or decking out a duplex, Weylandts may just hold the key to unlocking your own bespoke home style, without breaking your piggy bank.

What's that? Tired or trawling through so many choices? Then you may choose to peruse the range of clothing sourced in Portugal or dine at the fab in-store bistro, The Kitchen, which offers fine wine and a menu created by South African head chef, Charlene Pretorius.

Weylandts will be housed in the historical former match factory on Gipps Street, before rolling out into four further stores within the next two years.
