Design Joburg Collective – Fringe Design Districts

Kramerville Design District

Kramerville Design District houses Africa’s largest collection of interior design and décor services and stores.

Begun in 2005, Kramerville has evolved over the years from a previously industrial area to the hub of creative design and décor that it is today.

Conveniently located close to Sandton, the district has a wide range of excellent offerings, including homeware, lighting, appliances, fabrics, custom furniture, catering, specialised events, and a range of wonderful places to eat and drink.


44 Stanley

The most established precinct on the edge of downtown Joburg, 44 Stanley is a mixed use development that fuses downtown urbanism with a subtle sophistication. A mix of carefully-curated, bespoke stores and independent restaurants gives the centre an authenticity that runs through eating, drinking, shopping, working and living experiences.

Shady arcades and green courtyards between what was once a series of industrial 1930's buildings make this a unique Johannesburg space. Situated at 44 Stanley Avenue, Braamfontein, 44 Stanley welcomes you to the district over Design Joburg.
