A passion for the design masterpieces being turned out by the new wave of home furnishing designers in South Africa - and an appreciation for the traditional arts and crafts of African culture - led Noleen Kutash to open her showroom - Phases Africa in Los Angeles in 2004. The introduction of Noleen's collection of African furniture, and African decor to the U.S. market is a timely one. South African contemporary design - together with new directions in African craftwork - has been one of the > MORE hottest trends in the high-end European home furnishings market over the past year. The catalyst was Sotheby's "London/South Africa" (LOSA) exhibition in London in 2002, which showcased the results of collaboration between top British designers and wonderfully skilled craft workers from remote rural communities in South Africa. Phases Africa's unique furniture collection takes that trend further, and introduces a brand new contemporary African style of exotic furniture, to North America. It is an exciting mix of the "old" - Africa's rich tribal and European colonial heritage - combined with the "new" - sophisticated custom-made furniture and home furnishings from some of South Africa's leading contemporary designers.^ LESS
