Designer Advice

Africa is home to a wealth of wild animals, and deer are one of them. Whether you’re looking for a unique accent piece or are particularly fond of deer, this lamp won’t disappoint. It’s heavy, of good quality, and gives off a soft glow when lit. Other than that, it makes a great addition to rustic, cottage, and farmhouse spaces, but equally at home in a more contemporary setting as well.

Description

Add a hint of exotic to your space with this eye-catching floor lamp, showcasing a round base, slender column, and drum shade all covered in a brown and black leopard print. It stands 59" tall and comes with an in-line switch for your convenience.

Designer Advice

Not all African floor lamps have to be overly ornate, and this lamp proves so. The striking, glamorous patterns here are paired with a contemporary-style silhouette for a gorgeous balance of simplicity and uniqueness. That said, we recommend this lamp for corners since the lighting is quite low and is best used as accent lighting.

Designer Advice

Maybe you’ve got a handful of animal decor around the house. Or, perhaps your interior style is best described as worldly eclectic and is filled with items from around the globe. Either way, African-style lamps could be the perfect finishing touch for your decor. Want to sprinkle some more African character into your home? Pair this lamp with an animal print armchair for an exotic look.

Designer Advice

Contrary to other African lamps, this one is a lot easier to decorate with. Thanks to its versatile and toned-down design, you can let it blend in with your current interior aesthetic—be it traditional, Bohemian, contemporary, or mid-century modern—without creating a mismatched look.

Description

Part objet d’art, part functional, this intriguing source of light is inspired by the western side of Africa. The base—nay, the wow factor—consists of a Senoufu mask that has been intricately carved from solid hardwood, showing great attention to detail. 

Designer Advice

Aside from paying a lovely homage to Africa’s diverse ethnic groups, we love this piece for the ability to customize its appearance according to one’s home decor. Why not opt for a brass or maybe stainless steel lamp fitting if you’ve got matching accents throughout the room? You can also pick any lampshade color you want to either complement your interior or introduce an attractive contrast.
