Donald Nxumalo (Interior decorator)


As an interior designer, Donald Nxumalo’s career can largely be attributed to his love of objects from yesteryear. Having attended a historic school (and being a frequent visitor of antique fairs) his approach to design speaks to timeless narratives, noble materials, and classic patterns – all while honouring a modern perspective. Donald’s chair is every bit as bold and striking as his body of work. To contrast the soft lines of the wooden frame, he incorporated fabric with sharp geometric lines and colour. ‘This design was inspired by classic proportions that is prevalent in all my work,’ says Donald. ‘What I loved most about the fabric was that it is a geometric pattern that is modern and current, juxtaposed with the classic and softness of the frame from Millers Antiques.’
