Five Crazy Décor Items You Can Buy On Gumtree Right Now

On the 16th of September, designers all around the world will gather for Decorex International to view some of the latest décor and design trends in fabric, furniture and art. Of course, if you want to look for items that guarantee to break the moulds, you need to look no further than your neighbours’ garage or spare room, says Estelle Nagel, Vertical and Brand Manager for Gumtree South Africa.

Here are a few of the unusual décor items we’ve found on our site:

  1. An ejection seat chair

This number would be perfect for a man cave or bar. Although the R150,000 price tag might be a little steep, the seller is willing to throw in the original parachute – you never know, it could come in handy!

  1. Coach-shaped cocktail cabinet

Nothing says vintage chic quite like a coach. This little side board/drinks cabinet provides old school charm to any house.

  1. Giant cuckoo clock

This whopper of a cuckoo clock measures 76cm tall and 62cm diagonally – larger than most televisions. If the Capricorn motif becomes as popular as the stag motif was in 2017/2018 you are definitely investing in a winner.

  1. Pants planters

Dress your old ficus for success with these unusual pants-and-shoes planters.

  1. Book lamp

This unusual book-base lamp gives new meaning to the phrase “reading light”. An absolute must for a library or office.
