Out of Africa

I think my heart skipped a beat when I laid eyes on these gorgeous designs. Being the lovely person I am I thought I'd share the joy :-).  It is so refreshing to see design from Africa that is not the same ole same. The African design element is still very visible, but with a modern twist. I love it! Can you tell I'm excited? Okay, so get ready to feast your eyes.

I absolutely love these! I think they will be so perfect in a beautiful lush garden, or set up as a conversation spot in a living room. Ah heck they'll look great anywhere, but I love the garden idea. They are great conversation pieces too.

I call this lamp and pattern joy :-)

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love yellow, and this yellow pot is perfection!!!

I and that turquoise chair can be very very happy together!

You can find more about the artists and more goodness at Elle Decor SA. I stumbled on this article today and what a happy treat. I love African art, but sometimes I feel like its always the same just slightly different. Or maybe one has to dig a little deeper, look a little harder to find gems like these.
These pieces are truly inspiring and gorgeous!

Fatou I like that these are African inspired but not in the stereotypical manner.
Wonderful picks

Thanks Mazzy! I love the "newness" of them for African art. I want those lounge chairs :-)
