Our Story


Quality and integrity mixed with a strong dose of creativity. Inside Out’s unique furniture is made from all kinds of reclaimed wood.


Inside Out came into being five years ago when an artisan, André du Plessis, decided to put his passion  for working with wood to form a company. His two old partners, Jaco Grobler and Wayne Dalton, took care of both the built in cupboard side and the financial side of the business respectively. They have since left the company to pursue other interests.

The concept for Inside Out was born years ago when Jaco worked for André. They installed kitchen cabinets and laminated flooring. In his spare time, Jaco made ornamental wooden garden furniture and bird feeders. Later, they progressed to making furniture.

In 2013 they formed the company, Inside Out, and found premises with a showroom, a workshop and offices in the Marais industrial area, Vredenburg.

Today André focuses on hand-crafting freestanding furniture pieces of both modern and rustic design.. Wood is a living material with each piece different, ensuring a unique outcome every time. Clients often want perfection but art isn’t perfect. There is beauty in imperfection.

Our furniture, tailored to clients’ ideas, can be found in an assortment of spaces from entrant spaces to luxury homes. Inside Out helps customers to visualize their ideas into furniture they adore and that suit their specific lifestyle.

André du Plessis

André du Plessis, father of 3 children, declared that one day he would want to own a furniture factory, never in his wildest dreams thinking it will come true.

He started to install kitchen cabinets in his thirties to generate income, but soon realized that working with wood, taking a piece and creating something unconventional and unique, is his life’s calling.

He also loves the process of coming to understand clients’ exact needs and dreams and walking the distance alongside them – from creating the concept to presenting the finished product.

André is living his dream and sees a bright future for Inside Out, starting in August 2018 with opening up a second shop at The Palms Decor and Lifestyle Centre in Woodstock, Cape Town, managed by André’s son, Paul du Plessis.
