About Us

Who we are and what we do


Since 2005, David Bell has been sourcing an eclectic mix of architectural artefacts, lighting, furniture and much more from all over the world, including England, France, Belgium and Argentina. The result is an ever-changing collection of often massive, always out of the ordinary pieces reflecting a rich mix of cultures and eras. Never to be confused with a dusty antique shop, OnSite Gallery offers pieces both old and new that can hold their own in the most contemporary of spaces and the most monumental of surroundings.
We have started developing a range of strong limited edition items manufactured locally. Along the way, clients have cajoled us into co-creating one of a kind projects with them. The results are to be seen in many of South Africa’s most beautiful wine farms, restaurants and homes.

The Gallery is located in Loop Street, Cape Town CBD. In store, you will find our staff who are both knowledgeable about the stock and eager to help you find what you are looking for, whether your project is residential, or commercial.

We are happy to arrange packaging and delivery for our clients locally and internationally.
For a quotation, please contact us.

Except for the most fragile pieces, we hire out our stock to the movie and advertising industry at a rate of 25% of the retail price.

OnSite Gallery is also available for hire as a venue for photographic shoots.

As each item of our stock is unique and new stock is received on a weekly basis, it is almost impossible to put everything on the website. Likewise the status of an item, sold or available is not always 100% accurate.  The small possibility exists that prices may also change without prior notice.

Due to their age and nature of our pieces,  imperfections and flaws are often part of their character.
Please feel free to ask for additional photos and information.
