Natural, organic materials are being used in interiors more and more from contemporary, all white spaces to earthy African infused homes. They really can be incorporated into so many different looks… it’s all about the pieces you choose and how you combine them.
Whether it’s a beautiful wooden table, a woven basket or rattan chair, it’s a sure way to add warmth and texture. Being handmade they add that personal touch too. We have a number of local companies here in Cape Town that are work closely with skilled artisans, helping to keep these crafts alive. If you can, let’s support these guys rather than the big stores that import most of their goods .. take a look at Madwa, Design Afrika and Ashanti.
