OUR JOURNEY

OLALA INTERIORS opened their doors in 1993. Founder Schanè Anderson, opened our first design, decor and retail showroom under our founding name Damasque Interiors in Cresta Centre, Johannesburg. Outgrowing the space, the business moved to Melville, fondly referred to as the “GREEN HOUSE” where there was space for the showroom, fabric libraries and on-site workrooms. Interior Design trends evolved from a very heavily draped era to a cleaner more contemporary look, and it was decided to re-brand and re-name, and OLALA was born. OLALA INTERIORS opened 2 boutique stores, one in Ruimsig and one in Northcliff, which was sold independently when Schanè relocated to Ballito in 2009 to re-plant OLALA on the Coast. Our manufacturing division was opened in 2012 and we are excited to move into our new design offices in Ballito in August 2022.
