OUT OF AFRICA
Harboring fond memories of his childhood in South Africa, the client asked to fashion his new powder room after an African theme, with niches to display his favorite artifacts.
The small space is treated like poetry: in a few "verses" the room is filled with African essence, via materials and shapes. It is a product mix of unconventional powder room elements: wood-lined walls, leather vanity, chiseled limestone counter, slate flagstone flooring, natural branches, all engaged to capture the earthiness of the African landscape.
The tall thin niche right across the entry was made for the wood sculpture of an elongated African man greeting the guests.
The persisting wood fragrance, his wood statues and fond memories keep the client happy, -although he is long gone, Out of Africa.
