Cape Town Lifestyle blog & Online shop


Artefect, Cape TownTucked away in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Woodstock, in what was once the old Altona Hotel, you’ll find a gorgeous antiques and interiors shop called Artefect. You’ll probably struggle to find parking and curse the taxis all around you but once you leave the rather run down Main Road and climb the stairs to Artefect, you’ll see it’s all worthwhile. Enter into a perfectly styled and curated space full of beautiful French decorative pieces, linens and furniture. You’ll be conjuring up scenes of French country manors and romantic dramas and believe me you won’t want to leave empty handed.
