'Display Cabinets from
Africa' is owned by Peter Roberts who started his custom picture framing business, ' The
Picture Workshop', in 1993. Peter is the only framer ever to have had an
exhibition of his framing held at a leading Johannesburg art gallery (entitled "The Art
Framing") and a short documentary made on his art for South African television, which
subsequently had two repeat broadcasts. The Picture Workshop is now one of
Johannesburg's leading framing businesses with many corporate clients and well over 1000
regular customers from the neighbourhood.
The idea of branching out
into making display cabinets was inspired by requests from customers for a means of
displaying their collections / sporting trophies is such a manner that the collection
could be added to whenever a new purchase was made, or a new trophy won.
"The Picture Workshop"
has earned a reputation for the very high standard of its framing (nearly all new
business comes from word of mouth recommendation) and this tradition for excellence has been continued
by "Display Cabinets from Africa" which takes pride in ensuring that each cabinet is
truly a work of art.
