Buy African: Who Said Beige Is Boring?

Buy-African-Interiors-Furniture-Home-Decor-Beige-Not-Boring

'Beige', as an adjective, often has negative connotations – boring, plain, unimaginative. When we think of African design, we often think of the opposite – a creative kaleidoscope of prints and colours. I thought it would be interesting to find some beautiful design pieces for the home, that prove that beige can indeed delight. It's all about texture!
