Creating Furniture

Is Our Passion

About Us

Founded by Neil Mare & Waldo Herselman in 2004, Nowa is one of the most respected custom furniture design & manufacture companies in South Africa.

Nowa specializes in custom made bespoke furniture and has an over 5000 sqm

factory from where all our items are handcrafted with the utmost care and focus on  craftsmanship and quality. We are a trade-only company that supplies

exclusively to the decor and furniture industry in South Africa and abroad.


The slogan “dream, make, enjoy” encapsulates this passion; from the birth of a


 through to the manufacturing process… and then the satisfaction and appreciation

for the end product, both in design and craftsmanship.


What we do


Nowa has both wood product and steel product divisions that enable us to do all


manufacturing in-house. The wood product division is the most well-known aspect of Nowa, however, the steel division, which is able to manufacture in stainless steel and mild steel, are not far behind. This division allows us to custom make handles, bases, steel legs etc.


We have an in-house design team that design and conceptualize our ranges and product.


They work closely with our clients and designers from around the world to ensure

that we achieve their vision for their respective projects.


The Nowa goal is to deliver superb handcrafted furniture, timeously, again and again.
