African Furniture Design

African furniture and decor has much to offer the world when it comes to furnishing luxury homes, offices and the hospitality industry. The introduction of Phases Africa’s collection to Global markets, was well timed, by owner Noleen Kutash. Due to the fact, that these luxury African safari lodges, international 5 star hotels as well as, commercial buildings across the globe. That incorporated furniture made in Africa are consistently winning the top honors, in the world most prestigious travel and design publications. Our featured image is courtesy of: Chinzombo Zambi Safari Lodge.

The tree root tables featured above, used as coffee tables, are a particular popular furniture design idea trending right now.  Below are two Phases Africa tree root tables and the wood for all our tree roots are sustainably sourced, we only use naturally felled trees. The first tree root, was a coffee table base constructed for a 5 star lodge in Botswana – in this instance the timber used was Matzeri, an African hardwood.   In the second example; is an image of a 700mm high tree root, used as a tasting table for a wine cellar, in another 5 star lodge in South Africa.  In both instances we recommend glass tops (not seen in these images.)

African hand-beaded Yoruba Chairs

These African hand beaded royal chairs were made for the Yoruba royal family from South-western Nigeria, and Benin, in West Africa. It takes approx 12 to 14 weeks to add these tiny beads, to a single chair.  The colours and patterns can be made to your specifications and the style of the chair can also be changed within reason.

African Bamileke hand-carved stool used as a side table – white spray painted

These Bamileke hand-carved stools come in a large variety of patterns, sizes, and styles and finishes are either natural, stained dark or spray painted.  They are spectacular as a coffee table, when several Bamilekes are used at different sizes and heights, and stacked together in the center of a living room as group. A particularity wonderful coffee table idea is grouping several of these Bamilekes together, change up the sizes and even the styles.  And an additional plus in doing so is the smaller and lighter Bamilekes in the group, can quickly be moved to serve as side tables, for that cocktail to rest on.   In the image below the Bamileke stools have not been cleaned nor sanded or polished.  To see more style options visit all our pages in our “African Decor” category on our website.
