About Us

We are a small but accomplished team, based in the sleepy hollow of Pietermaritzburg. When you order from the Streets, rest assured that you’re getting that personally touched and honestly hand-crafted item.

The Streets Furniture Co. was birthed out of a desire Neil had since childhood – to bring something beautifully crafted to the marketplace.

Neil started his creative journey in music, however, upon completing his music degree at Howard College, he decided to steer in a different creative direction. Thus ‘The Streets’ (a 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. Our online shop provides customers with a unique range of contemporary pieces, utilizing reclaimed, new and industrial-inspired materials, to achieve minimalist, timeless design.

The Streets now offers both custom-made furniture as well as specialized shopfitting in KZN, Gauteng and further reaches in our beautiful country. All our products are manufactured locally in South Africa from various materials. We source locally as far as possible, but also import 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 South Africa.

The Streets Team

CEO / Founder

Besides his passion for design, woodwork and music – Neil dabbles in mountain biking and a bit of surfing in his spare time.

Operations Manager

Don’t be fooled by his hard exterior, this guy is actually a softie. Dave runs the day-to-day operations at the factory and tries not to get swallowed up by sawdust.

Timber & Cabinetry

Master of the perfect table top, Ron has been with us since The Streets became a real business. He doesn’t say much, but when he does, it’s either hilarious or profound. He loves fishing.

Quality Control & Packaging

With an eye for detail, and always the friendliest, most considerate guy in the factory – we can’t imagine a day without a Marsh smile in it.


She likes to draw pretty pictures, so it made sense for Helen to take on marketing for The Streets. She loves her family, hummus, and tries not too drink too much coffee..

Steel Fabricator

Accurate and detail-oriented, you can be sure anything Lincoln touches will have that magic Steel Boss touch.

Cabinet Maker

Knowledge quietly carries on with perfecting and finishing every timber piece. A man of few words, we are always pleasantly surprised and excited by anything he produces.
