Anikesh Ramani and Gavin Thomas are the owners of my favorite store in Johannesburg, MØDERNIST in the trendy area of Parkhurst. I would drop some serious dollar on this place if it weren’t for my own obsession with restoring furniture. In fact, my interests in decor started as a result of buying a beautiful headboard from these gents only last year. The Modernist came about after a good client (Anikesh) got into business with Gavin, who owned Wasteland at 44 Stanley at the time, they expanded on the business model and voila, Modernist. Their pieces are well made, fit perfectly into a modern day aesthetic and are not horribly expensive. The great news is they are now producing their own pieces in the style of their reclaimed furniture. Make sure you stop by for a look.
