The aARTvark Collection offer you the chance to buy something completely unique for your home & family to love for a lifetime.


Cobus Swart

Cobus's work is inspired by 20 years experience from South Africa, and New Zealand wgere he made furnitrue for private clients. He is an artist, specialising in one off, never to be made the same twice, beautifully crafted bespoke furntiure. He want's his clients to love his piece like he does, to feel it, and to look at it from every corner and angle, and most importantly, to use the piece, so it creates your family memories with you.


“We commissioned a table and bench from Cobus and we got two pieces of beautiful art! (still sturdy and usable as a table and bench for the family). They are both stunning pieces in their own right, built with various kinds of wood. The detail and design attest to Cobus’ technical and artistic woodworking craft.”
— Jan & Helen Macmullen
