At Haldane Martin they’re saluting the sun with a new outdoor sofa collection: Papa Sun! Designed in Cape Town, the curvaceous Papa Sun collection embodies the character of the city: Luxe Urban-Chic Outdoor-Living.  With it’s simplified, scooped form, Papa Sun is a luxuriously comfortable, contemporary bend on the round Malaysian cane papasan chair, popularized in Western culture in post-war 1950s.


Step outside & sink into the deep comfort of moon-shaped seats. Poised as if floating in mid-air, the luxe round nests are held by minimal round stainless-steel tubing. Curl up in luxury engulfed in modern fibre cushions, supportively scooped-up by curved ribs of stainless-steel solid rod.

The most coveted spot to unwind is also an aesthetic statement piece for the metropolitan patio.

A round bowl of graphic wire stripes with ergonomic structure and functional materiality, Haldane Martin’s Papa Sun is an architectural & simple take on the bohemian classic.

It’s the ideal plush retreat for you and your book, cosy in the bedroom, under a tree in the garden or out in the sun next to the pool. Whether it’s an accent piece you’re after or an entire lounge set to entertain friends & family, this curvaceous outdoor collection sporting 1,2 & 3-seater sofas is a summer dream come true!


Now, with 5 new furniture collections released in 2019, Haldane Martin is bringing contemporary South African identity to exterior spaces. With their good-looks, customisable finish options and optimal functionality Hula, Cha Cha, Polka and Papa Sun collections make exquisite additions to premium spaces indoors or out in the elements! Over-looking the sea & the city in oceanic hues, they’re a fusion of function, form & South African flair, photographed by Henrique Wilding at Ilkley Crescent (Kluk CGDT)

A full set of Cha Cha Occasional Tables pop in vibrant blues and greens. These minimalist Memphis-like plinths are stainless steel & come in an assortment of heights, diameters, colours and even terrazzo table tops! They’re the perfect addition to the patio or lounge as stand-alone features or combined to form colourful compositions.

The iconic chair that started it all – Hula Dining Chair. Haldane Martin’s playful & practical modern Hula chair is a nostalgic reference to South African gardens of the 70s. Conjuring childhood memories of ‘hoop’ chairs that left waffle patterns on your skin and ‘slasto paving.’  From the Hula Dining Chair, a full collection was born, followed by Cha Cha, Polka, Plat-O and now Papa Sun!
