What to expect from African decor and furniture in 2022: Here’s the scoop – several of the world’s most prestigious architectural design firms as well as, numerous top international interior designers have acquired quality furniture & decor directly from the African continent.  There is a reason for doing so.  Mainly, due to the fact, that a majority of the contemporary as well as, traditional bespoke handmade African furniture and decor – seen in some of these award-winning African safari lodges featured here, are locally made by exceptional craftsmen.  Today, African decor & furniture are seen in International 5* hotels, prestigious commercial real-estate, awe-inspiring developments as well as, luxury homes across the globe.
