Wetherlys Factory Shops
As one of South Africa’s major furniture retailers, Wetherlys is quite literally a household name, with its products finding a place in homes all over the country.
The company’s stated vision is to be a trendsetter and innovator in the furniture industry, inspiring South Africans to fulfill their dreams for home living and to expand the range of unique aesthetic and functional possibilities that furniture items and accessories can create.
With styles inspired by the latest trends and fabrics from all over the world, and a dedicated team of buyers who are always on the lookout for new and exciting ideas, the Wetherlys range is one that is constantly being improved and updated.
Wetherlys has over forty years of experience in the furniture industry. Founded in 1973 as a small, family-run business based in a garage in Auckland Park, Johannesburg, the company originally specialised in homemade furniture, antiques made from Cape yellowwood, rattan items, and imported basket weave and porcelain pieces, selling these to discerning buyers in the Johannesburg area. With a focus on quality craftsmanship from the start, the company’s foundations were well laid for its success.
Early history of the furniture retailer
In an early and extremely savvy business move, the Wetherlys team quickly realised that a business of their nature and intended scale could not be run out of a conventional retail location.
