Darren and Lance Postan started their careers in the Finance world, before making the move to the furniture industry. Believing in their creative ability and business acumen, Darren and Lance purchased a small furniture retailer called Casarredo. After spending seven years in the industry, they were able to identify a gap in the market, whereby in 2009 they made the move to the northern suburbs and started attracting individuals that were seeking exclusive and designer products. Today 95% of Casarredo’s products are Italian. There is an ever increasing opportunity for this type of furniture as the local consumer is becoming more aware of international brands.
Italy has a long-standing reputation of being at the forefront of international design. Regular visits to Italy as well as the other European countries provides the Casarredo team with inspiration and maintains their knowledge of the ever-changing design and fashions in the industry. Casarredo is continuously searching for different suppliers to enhance and interact with their many collections. Italian furniture companies’ decades of experience have resulted in the development of skilled workers and sophisticated machinery, which in turn produce high quality furniture that is both trendy and meets the desire of simplicity and functionality.
The contemporary direction that Casarredo has taken in the past few years can literally be explained as what form and design the brothers, as the Owners appreciate. The Casarredo team of Interior Decorators and Designers travel far and wide in search of new and unique pieces that would fit into the high standard of workmanship and style that Casarredo represents.
In August 2015, Casarredo moved to their new premises on Bowling Avenue in Kramerville, Sandton. Kramerville has in recent years transformed from a mostly industrial area to the hub of décor and design for Africa.
Today, Casarredo is the largest Italian design and décor showroom in South Africa, stocking luxury and trendy international brands, namely Fendi Casa, Roberto Cavalli Interiors, Bentley Home, Reflex, Bretz, Edra, Kettal, Bonaldo, Gamma, Pietro Constantini, Fiam, Fontanaarte, Gallotti & Radice, and Penta to name but a few.
Feel at home as you step into Casarredo’s contemporary Flagship showroom where you will experience the sense of luxury inherent in Italian design. It is here that you can create warm, lavish and stylish interior spaces that you will enjoy, share and savour.
