Kallenbach’s Furniture

John Tabraham was the designer of choice for many premium South African furniture manufacturers during the 1950s and 60s.

Tabraham is most recognised for his work with top end furniture maker Kallenbach. The furniture was highly desirable during the 1960s and 70s. It was sold through exclusive stores like Prosperitas in Pretoria.

Decorative Art 1950s” published by Taschen showcases four of Tabraham’s designs for D.S Vorster & Co, which hold their own alongside the best in the world. - information courtesy http://www.mrbigglesworthy.co.nz
