Go with the African Flo

I'm a big fan of this woven wicker Flo collection by Patricia Urquiola for Driade.

Photographer Katya de Grunwald did a shoot for an Elle Deco UK story on African Chic, putting the Flo chairs to stylish use, capturing a strong African style that avoids the clichéd safari style so beloved of our guest houses and hotels.

Take a look at more of Katya de Grunwald's African Chic pics at her website. Also, take a look at a local hotel that manages to be African without the cliché in this earlier post .

Such a pleasure to see some original African design. I think there are many of us who are over the whole zebra stripe and leopard print safari thing.
