Art is not a luxury, but a necessity
This famous quote from British author and critic Rebecca West drives our passion for what we do. Our personal relationship with a wide selection of artists, and the abundant collection of artworks available through our Opulent Living Concept Store & Gallery, is another reason for our love of art – and we believe you have to love art when you want to offer art to your audience.
Ever since we established Opulent Living – the ‘brand for the finer things in life’ – in 2009, we’ve been dedicated to showcasing what South Africa has to offer. It’s been such a fulfilling journey, and with the work we’ve done over the years, and the relationships we’ve built up, came the wish to create a space that would allow us to exhibit the amazing art and luxurious hand-crafted products that the inspiring African continent has to offer.
Our Concept Store & Gallery, which opened in Cape Town’s vibey Kloof Street in late 2016, is the realisation of that dream. It brings the key ingredients of the Opulent Living brand together in one beautiful space that celebrates the best of lifestyle, art and travel – simply the finer things in life.
Our Gallery sells artwork from some of the country’s finest sculptors and painters, as well as limited-edition prints, art photography and works from young and upcoming artists from the African continent. We love to tell the stories of our pieces, we believe in service and our aim is to bring people together in a happy space that is unique – in its gem-like colour scheme, in its artfully curated displays and for its friendly atmosphere.
Now we are giving our international clients the opportunity to access our collections via the internet or by email and phone. Simply contact us and we will assist you. You won’t even need to come into our gallery as we’ll ship your purchase directly to you – wherever you are in the world. What could be more convenient – or luxurious? Though of course, if you are in Cape Town, we’d love to see you in our Kloof Street Gallery. We’re confident you’ll feel it was worth the trip.
Most of the art we have in stock can be viewed in our online gallery. If you are looking for something specific and can’t find it, please contact us – we are happy to source items for you.
We have a wide choice of limited-edition art prints as well as select original paintings by Richard Scott.
