About Us

Joon is made in Paarden Eiland, Cape Town by owner and creator Lise Nelson.

Lise studied and worked in Interior design before starting modern furniture and accessories brand Dark Horse with her husband Jarrad. Lise's love for clean sleek interiors and the need for practical storage space inspired Joon's focused collection of cabinets and accessories. 

With Lise living in an apartment, being a business owner and starting a new family, Joon's collection is built especially to suit small spaces and changing lifestyles where versatility is key.

The word joon, while literally meaning 'life,' can also be used as a term of endearment for the ones you feel love or affection.
