Raw Comfort Discoveries at Homemakers Expo

raw concrete kitchen countertops

Today’s home is a reflection of its people, gone is the need to look like the Jones’s. Our homes are authentically us, stripped of pretense. Product transparency is also a growing trend; we shop with a higher conscience focusing on wellness and sustainability, wanting to know the person or story behind our purchase.

This year the Pretoria HOMEMAKERS Expo brings you the stories and the best products in home improvement. The Expo is where you can come face-to-face with the craftspeople or knowledgeable experts who provide visitors with the best understanding of the product.

The show helps to expand dialogue between homeowners and suppliers. It offers unique ways for you to see, touch, feel and compare products and services.

The 2019 theme of Raw Comfort, embraces perfect imperfections, and through various talks and demonstrations we will show you how to get in touch with a more organic world.

Show features include:interior design with raw concrete
