The Face behind the brand - The Face behind the Brand – Sandy de Bruin, ex-Miss South Africa, style icon and home-maker, whose lifestyle business resonate atmosphere and ambience. Sandy’s eye for quality and a natural flair for texture and colour have driven her passion for her business, which now enters its fifteenth year.
Sandy started small, from a home-based workshop in 1997. A move into stores and brand franchising followed with an ever-expanding range of homewares and furnishings – all carrying the stamp of her signature style. Now Sandy travels the globe to bring the latest ranges of furniture and accessories to the South African market. World travels natural atmospheres and different cultures of design inspire Sandy’s design trends.
Sandy’s attention to detail in everything she does, from the exquisitely wrapped gifts, to the wonderful and constantly changing floor displays and merchandising all contribute to the style and ambience that make COUNTRY LIVING well worth the visit.
Our Stores are expanding across the Country due to popular demand, and Sandy has sold some Franchises to keep up with demand. Bryanston is still the heart and soul of CL, which was followed by Atholl, Bedfordview and now the newly opened Pretoria store in Waterkloof. The Warehouse showroom has just opened its doors to showcase the full ranges of furniture and to make the lives of decorators easier, to source products.
