Out of Africa

Accessories are the finishing touch to an interior design, the final piece of the puzzle.

I tend to prefer accessories that are made from natural materials and have an authenticity about them. The accessories above fit the bill. They come from Africa, are handmade of ebony, skins, ostrich eggs and porcupine quills. They are well made and elegantly designed, but they also embody originality, permanence, and an organic connection with nature. My clients enjoy seeing them on their bookshelves, cocktail tables, sofas or display cabinets, and want to know about their history. To me, they are a world away (literally) from the glut of disposable accessories that seem to be everywhere.
