In post – Renaissance Europe, Africa’s Kuba and Showa Cloth as well as Antique Brodee, the embroidered and appliqué decorated raffia cloth from the Congo (formerly Zaire), entered the curio cabinets and treasuries of nobles and kings as the finest representation of African art. More recently, the mastery of Kuba cloths’ abstract patterning was a source of inspiration to artists such as Matisse, who displayed part of his large collection on the wall of his studio.

An interior decor idea from Africa:  Turn these old African grain pots upside down and paint them, as seen below, they make ideal occasional or side-tables indoor or outdoors.  The old pots left as is – can be used as pot planters also inside or outside.

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.)
