At the intersection, where “Industrial Chic” and “Rustic” meet, you will find The Little Rustic Place…
We are designers, manufacturers and suppliers of rustic, industrial-chic, vintage and shabby-chic inspired décor and props for all events.
Our alternative, little home-based hiring business, offers a “One of each kind” eclectic range which defines the spheres of the “Rustic” world- where no two items are the same. Mix and Match, Contrast and Compliment, we will help you integrate our items to achieve the perfect décor setting and a “talk of the town” event.
Whether you are planning a wedding, birthday, corporate event, bridal or baby shower, “The Little Rustic Place” might just have what you need and if we don’t, we will certainly go to great lengths to try and find if not make that special something.
If at first glance you do not see anything on our list, that meets your requirements, please drop me a mail and let’s discuss-If it is out there, we can more than likely supply it and probably at a fraction of the price!
Our clients are welcomed to a “cuppa” in a relaxed, feel-at- home environment, while you browse our ever growing rustic/ vintage inspired collection. It is for this reason and for the purpose of one on one, unpressurized consultation, that we see clients by appointment only- In the mean time, all enquiries will be promptly and gladly addressed via e-mail, telephone or Whatsapp.
Who's behind The Little Rustic Place
Plan, Design, Create, Organise – It’s what Chantal does best! -Whether within their home or their business.
Her design philosophy is that every décor setting acquires that much more character when something rustic or vintage is added to that setting, to balance out modern elements.
Chantal’s personable character and friendly approach is clear from your first encounter with her and her energy and passion for all things rustic and DIY is infectious
Following a career in Kitchen Designing, Sales and Administration (in various industries) and then the birth of their children, Jonathan and Chantal realised that their family would benefit most with a full time Stay at home mom and this subsequently led to her giving up her career in order to serve their family. Her inability to “sit still” coupled with her love for all things rustic is what propelled her to make affordable rustic décor available to all those who share her passion.
If she is not busy researching new product ideas to add to their range or physically building décor items for The Little Rustic Place you will find her at her home tackling some DIY project, crafting and enjoying the company of her family, fur-family and friends
Chantal is responsible for all administration and design aspects of the business and even though managing their home and raising their four children is her number one priority, she continues to keep her discerning eye on the growth and establishment of their youngest baby “The Little Rustic Place”
Prior to becoming physically involved in the Little Rustic Place, Jonathan spent 8 years in the Customer Service industry and therefore has the knack for going further than the extra mile to ensure that clients feel assured and happy to the end.
Since joining TLRP he has discovered new dimensions to his God given abilities and has developed a passion for woodwork. He also merrily assists with venue styling.
Their family agree that Teamwork makes the Dream work- While the success of their business depends on her strengths to manage and design, it greatly relies on his strengths to manufacture and deliver And equally important, they are thankful for the support and co-operation they get from their children.
But as with any married couple, the pair admits that working together can be a bit crazy at times, with Chantal always “delegating” and Jonathan not always in the mood to be delegated to (lol)- However once coaxed into going along with the plan, it’s not long before Jonathan is excited to see the end result of a design his wife had conceptualised and a final product that he himself has built.
“When asked what it is that we do- We do whatever it takes”!

What Our Clients have to say
“Because of water restrictions the lawn in my yard is uneven but those tables and benches were solid and sturdy”
