Watney Designs is a Johannesburg based business that started back in 2011 when father-and-son owners Grant and Warric Dyers started making decor out of unique second hand building material.
They had tons of ideas but were short of manpower. They then took on the initiative of providing jobs for the vast amount of unemployed youth in the neighbourhood. With the major rejuvenation of infrastructure going on in and around the Johannesburg CBD, this was a great opportunity to create jobs and recycle the materials that are being thrown out.
Now their team of talented carpenters, shop-fitters and picture framers have devoted their time to keeping the history of this great city by designing and creating modern, trendy furniture and decor .
