“While the more stereotypical animal print and wood designs traditionally found in African-inspired interiors are beautiful, African design seems to be embracing contemporary influences, pairing them with ethnic furniture style and colour. Being the second largest continent on the planet after Asia, there is certainly plenty to be inspired by.” – InsideOut, February 2012
This home in Dubai’s Green Community has exactly that – a beautiful contemporary and airy take on rustic African design. Dramatic, vintage-looking Kährs Oak Danaborg wood flooring completes the look. Oak Danaborg has a handcrafted surface to enhance the beauty of the knots and cracks, and is lightly smoked and surface treated with a natural white oil that gives it a grey look.
