We all love a good collection of African-enthused furniture!

Today, we’re highlighting an industry favorite, Jomo Tariku, who spearheads his own line of unique and modern African furniture based on themes from all over the continent.

Born to Ethiopian parents in Nairobi, Tariku left for the US to pursue his college degree in Industrial Design while considering a transfer to study fine arts at the University of Kansas. He cites his biggest accomplishments as “tirelessly working to represent African design in furniture and home decor industry from the perspective that most consumers are not accustomed to.” (via 28Blacks).

Jomo’s furniture reflects his bold approach to design, imprinting cultural themes and patterns on wood, metal, leather and acrylic. Check them out!
