Elmarie Van Heerden



Founder and owner of The Green Room, Elmarie van Heerden, a native South African, knows from experience what home decorators need in Tanzania. Her boutique has matured into an African lifestyle brand including products by more than 40 East African craftspeople. Her fine and trendy furniture is not mass production rather of handmade ecological design.

A young, fashionable entrepreneur, Elmarie van Heerden is actually a professional garden designer, her love of plants– also available at The Green Room – and her belief in nature inspired designs gave the shop its name.


The Green Room has a maritime-African flair, a perfect blend of beach, bush and town.
