African Prints in your living room – sounds too much? Like with fashion, it all depends on the right mix. I tend to have a lot of white, grey and black furniture in my apartment – clean lines and designs that are sleek and stylish help in my opinion to not get bored of furniture too quickly.
Upholstery – Make new out of old
Mixing in some upholstered furniture in African Print works perfect with that look. It gives the apartment a sprinkle of color and can be an awesome highlight. I always admired people who were able to upholster furniture themselves. Recently I came across this beautiful pink & brown print and decided to cooperate with a friend who is an interior designer and an upholstery expert. We beautified several chairs and one ottoman together. Some of them are still available here.
More beautiful pieces will be added before the holidays. But until then I decided to share some African Print furniture inspirations from other brands like Enitan Vintage and 3RD Culture.

Beautiful, but how sturdy is the fabric? If it’s the same wax we use for clothing, an not sure it makes for very lasting upholstery. Thanks!
Hi Hortense, the good quality fabric is 100% cotton so it’s quite durable and works well.
He also worked on Royal Hut of Mary Vinson and also, carries the fabrics all over the world. But, you have picture, with no Credit of the person or their work. Is this usual?
