South Africa has first class interior designers. Paul Duncan’s Style Icons showcases a range of places, all of them in southern Africa, designed and decorated by the best of them. Some are well known, others less so, and not all of them are decorators. Paul Duncan’s collection puts forward work that’s been chosen for its peculiar freshness, its African-ness and originality. His experience as House & Garden’s launch editor in South Africa has given him the inside track. Style Icons features the work of Karen Roos, Maira Koutsoudakis, John Jacob Zwiegelaar, Charlotte Daneel, Michele Throssell, Stefan Antoni, Catherine Raphaely, Stephen Falcke, Julian & Trevyn McGowan, Toni Tollman, Boyd Ferguson and Graham Viney. In their own words they give voice to their influences and stylistic range, likes and dislikes, and how they see themselves and their work.
