New Africa

Today's Africa is modern, sophisticated, strong.

You can definitely see the origins of the modern design coming from a primitive and rustic base. Far away from ethnic stereotypes and trends these pieces can live in any style. The rough synergy that these pieces bring to a room can add comfort and uniqueness without compromising the end result of a well thought out space. You can find today ostrich feathers lamps, ebony, wenge and kiaat wood products, African masks, Baoulé sculptures, animal prints, and ceramics that will definitely bring a vintage feel that feels new and renovated. This is the result of a new breed of designers from Europe and other continents that are approaching design from a sculptural perspective and having African roots as their inspiration.
