The Mad Cow

The Mad Cow Interiors is a retail outlet for Astrid Sinclair’s 30+ years experience in all aspects of décor and beautiful things and provides a full service of upholstery and curtaining with hundreds of affordable fabric choices. 

Anyone who has a home, office or hotel and is looking for something which is NOT available anywhere else. Most items are specific to The Mad Cow Interiors and are not repeated. Hundreds of products are available from the shop. Custom made items, reupholstery and curtaining made off the shop premises are delivered. Shop stock ranges from R99.00 to R8500.00 so there is a full spectrum of beautiful things for everyone’s budget

Astrid’s private collections include fabrics collected since the 1980’s and from which she creates exquisite once off scatter cushions and table wear. These are also sometimes embroidered or painted depending on what the specific fabric requires. From her antique art catalogues she has art works reproduced on canvases. Years of contacts provide her with a huge portfolio of interesting suppliers of items like lamps, mirrors, object d’art etc. 
Better known from 25 years at Sinclair Interiors, Astrid decided The Mad Cow would be a name of interest within The Stables Village and likes to think the individuality of the shop and it’s contents are ‘off the wall’ and sufficiently different to justify the name. The well known and much publicised slogan “Not quite the usual stuff’ which was the watchword of Sinclair Interiors is just as appropriate at The Mad Cow Interiors. 

“I have always been entrepreneurial. I started my first furniture business while I was still at school and have always flourished within this ambit.” states Astrid. 

“I take an interest in each person’s specific needs and requirements and will spend whatever time and effort is required to provide them with their own individual need. My style is completely fluid. I create to each person’s specific requirements and can create interiors which are ultra modern, minimalistic, antique, dramatic or country. Whether budgets are restricted or unlimited, I am always conscious to work within the boundaries of what customers have available to spend and to give them as much as is possible. Each customer who enters my shop is provided the same level of attention and care regardless of their budgets.”

“In my opinion, business success is repeat business. When dealing with something as personal as someone’s home, returning to my service offering means that favourable pricing, honesty, efficiency and diligence have been provided.” 

“I have clients for whom I have done repeat work for 35 years (and whose children’s homes I am now furnishing) I have done 13 hotels, several Game Lodges, multiple Business Parks hundreds of Offices and thousands of houses, apartments and flats locally and overseas. Some big and some small, but each one given the same attention to detail.” 
The Mad Cow Interiors keeps up with trending fabrics and colours and hopes with good passing trade and new customers to continue providing a service which is affordable to all. 

The Mad Cow Interiors is open at The Stables Village everyday from Tuesday to Sunday from 9am and accessible through Facebook. Astrid Sinclair can be contacted on 082 6510 398.
