Get the Look: African chic

Four items to give your home an African appeal.

Statement piece

The Monoc chair combines two of the most important elements of any African-inspired interior - leather and animal print. If you're looking for a statement piece to build your scheme around, you'd be hard-pressed to find anything more eye-catching. Dh8,495, The One stores nationwide

Containment

Wilson hasn't held back with the animal print, but you might want to take a more measured approach. Contain animal prints to soft accessories such as this cushion from Zara, which is easier to change and move around. Dh145, Zara Home

Fake it

No game lodge is complete without a pair of antlers on the wall. Even if hunting isn't your idea of a good time, you can fake it with this Kudu skull from The One Fusion. Dh169, The One Fusion, Al Quoz, Dubai

Baby steps

If you're not ready to fully commit to this look, start by introducing some African art into your space. Objects and Element in Dubai offers a wide range. Dh2,500, Objects and Element, Al Quoz, Dubai
