Tea for Two: among friends and fellow creatives

Catch up on the conversation between furniture and interior designer-vlogger Justin van Breda and Lifestyling.co.za publisher, Jean-Pierre de la Chaumette.

You first met Justin van Breda in our launch edition PEOPLE Q&A which covered time travel and the chair that “should be on every veranda in the world.” Now, he interviews our very own publisher (and good friend) Jean-Pierre de la Chaumette (JP) on his renowned vlog Tea for Two, a global talk series hosted on his Instagram Live @justinvanbreda, which kicked off in lockdown with fellow South African designer Serena Crawford.
