M+S Designs Incorporating Pieter Deon Designs
The local Gansbaai based design and manufacturing business, M+S Designs, who have been creating a variety of innovative wooden products over the past few years, have added a major asset to their portfolio.
“Sometimes to stay ahead of the game one needs to develop further and evolve, and to this end as from 1 July 2020, M+S Designs will proudly be adding another really special brand to their line-up of design products, namely Pieter deon designs,” says Mark Collings, the M in the M+S Designs brand.
The ‘S’ in the M+S Designs team is Shirley Rothero, who with Mark started the business in 2018. “Since our very small beginnings, we grew with the support of the community and have continued to evolve over the past two and a half years, servicing clients from Gansbaai and environs.”
“We both have a passion for creating products to decorate, uplift and beautify homes, offices, guest houses or whatever space you would like to add a feature pizazz to. We see ourselves as the artisanal leaders in the design and manufacture of bespoke interior and exterior wooden décor, furniture, cabinetry and woodcutting,” Mark said.
As an established and growing business in Gansbaai, M+S Designs recognises the needs and wants of people in and around the area and do their best to fulfil such.
M+S Designs heard the cries of the clients, of where, what and how will they ever own another Pieter Deon design when it was announced that Pieter Deon was closing down the sales outlet and calling it a day with manufacturing.
The Pieter Deon brand was run by a dynamic sales team and the craftsmen and -women who, like Pieter Deon himself, strived to inspire and provide customers with original furniture, beautiful décor and a caring service. Pieter Deon Coetzer began his career creating wooden furniture in a workshop over 20 years ago. By word of mouth the creativity and quality of his work has morphed into must have pieces that have and will continue to be a personal lifestyle signature design.
“M+S Designs have now acquired the rights to Pieter deon designs, intellectual property, as well as and most importantly, hired the very highly skilled key craftsmen and -women from his workshop. We are honoured to be able to continue such a legacy in Gansbaai and promise to offer these gorgeous unique handmade pieces filled with passion and soul, which were inspired by PD and loved by clients across the country as the quality clients have come to expect,” Shirley explained the way forward.
Mark loves designing and creating new concepts. He has designed and built laboratories, specialised filtration systems and sterile enclosures like the ones seen in movies where they work with dangerous bugs. The M+S Designs Studio is the concept closest to his heart and he personally manages the workshop and designs clients’ woodworking ideas.
Shirley has been creating for as long as she can remember and has used her skills and life experience to become a successful entrepreneur. Having travelled and lived in many towns around the globe, she has a deep appreciation for the styles and designs of all nationalities and religions. When she is not creating something, she is dreaming about creating something!
“The M+S Designs family looks forward to a new chapter incorporating Pieter deon designs to our brand. Our mission statement is Your Idea is Our Creation where no project is too big or too small,” Shirley said.
They will be offering Pieter deon designs online very soon and M+S Designs welcomes any enquiries.
