Unique Restored & Transformed Furniture
My name is Lou-Anne, and I am the owner of Second Chances Décor. Based in Hermanus in the Western Cape, we specialise in creating beautifully restored and transformed furniture.
Second Chances Décor was born from a number of my passions, I believe in living sustainably, recycling, reusing and where possible re-purposing. I also love beautiful decor. As a child I enjoyed scouring markets for old things such as jewellery, books etc. and now my teenage daughter loves thrift shopping and if ever you need to know where the “cool” (do they even use that word now?) thrift shops are in Cape Town, you are welcome to contact me.
At our workshop in Hermanus, we revamp old unloved and unwanted furniture & décor into accent pieces and unique decor items that will beautify and serve at least one more generation’s living space.
Here beautiful things, and specifically décor and furniture items, are given a second chance. Our restored and transformed furniture & decor is lovingly hand-crafted by a team of artisans. Each item is an accent piece – a unique decor item to enhance your space.
I feel certain many of you have seen the house signs that read “In this house we do second chances…” I am not a fan of these signs personally. I believe in the philosophy, hell we all need it, but the signs, not so much, a bit too “twee” for me. Second Chances should not only apply to people, but it also absolutely has a place in Interior Decorating and Design.
