FAVORITE PARTNER — NGALA TRADING

Since we couldn’t go to the spring markets, we thought we would share some of our favorite vendor partners we love to use in our designs. I absolutely fell in love with EVERYTHING in the Ngala Trading booth when I first saw it several years ago. Below we share some of the highlights. First, their handmade leather draped chandeliers are gorgeous~

Ngala Trading Co. launched in 2016 by founding partners Lawson Ricketts and Nick Geimer to promote African-designed and manufactured luxury lighting and curated home décor products.  Having opened and run an interiors and home décor business in their adopted home of Johannesburg, South Africa, the duo was determined to bring their favorite products to America when they decided to return home after 10 years abroad.

Ngala’s first collection was created by selecting Nick and Lawson’s favorite products from their own store catalogue, each of which had to exhibit the characteristics of being uniquely designed from sustainably sourced indigenous African materials. Check out these swivels…

The products were and continue to be high quality and made entirely by hand somewhere in Africa – from Cameroon to Cape Town. Now representing several established brands as well as their own “house brand,” each of the products distributed by Ngala Trading Co. remains organic, hand-made and sustainably sourced from exotic materials such as feathers, ostrich eggs, leather, porcupine quills, suede and ostrich shins. Each product has a story, and is not only functional, but a statement piece — blending earthy, raw African materials with contemporary American styling.

Ngala’s patterns are absolutely stunning…

I also Ngala’s pillows and tablecloths in my own home…

The tablecloths are so stunning they make any tablescape extraordinary…

Just let us know if you would like to incorporate these extraordinary products into your home.
