About us – The Streets
We specialize in creative Shopfitting and Furniture Design.
The Streets Furniture Company, started in 2008 by Neil Du Plessis, was birthed out of a desire to pursue a passion he’d had since childhood – to bring something beautifully crafted to the market place. Neil’s started his creative journey in music, however, upon completing his B-mus at Howard College, he decided to steer in a different creative direction. Thus ‘The Streets’ (the name derived from the British rap group) was born.
The journey began with a simple dining room table made from reclaimed timber during the summer of 2008 and has progressed into a niche, furniture outlet. The look provides customers with a unique range of contemporary pieces, utilizing reclaimed, new and industrial-inspired materials as its main medium to achieve a minimalist Scandinavian design style. The Streets now offers both custom-made furniture as well as specialized shopfitting in Pietermaritzburg, Durban, and adjacent areas, as well as Gauteng and further reaches in our beautiful country.
All our products are manufactured locally in South Africa from various material such as reclaimed timber, as well as imported hardwoods from the U.S. & Europe. Our products go out to all parts of the country via courier, and we have many happy customers all over the country adding The Streets aesthetic to their own design styles.
