African treehouses

Safari Fusion blog | African treehouses | Stylish tree lodgings at Lion Sands Kingston Treehouse, South AfricaI have always had a thing for treehouses since I was a child. I grew up watching the 70s television series The Swiss Family Robinson and was enthralled with their amazing treehouse, complete with swinging ropes and trap doors.The idea of living high up in the tree canopy with the birds and the fresh air has been reinvented in Africa. A humble treehouse no longer, instead these modern tribal tree lodgings are seriously luxurious and give a whole new meaning to a bird's eye view of the world.

Inside a customer's home

Safari Fusion blog | Inside a customer's home | Safari Fusion's black wire Impala Head finds a new home in a boy's room | Interior by Bask Interiors
One of our lovely customer's, Michelle from Bask Interiors, recently shared some photos of a client project that incorporated a Safari Fusion piece.

She purchased our wire Impala Head in the black epoxy finish; a perfect fit for the black, grey and yellow colour scheme of a boy's bedroom.

With limited time to pull this project together I think the ladies at Bask Interiors have done an amazing job, and more importantly their client was very happy.

Thank you Michelle from Bask Interiors for sharing!

Light the way

I could be biased here, but I think African's are incredibly creative when it comes to creating 'wow' lighting. Designers seem to have a knack for taking an everyday piece and turning it into an artistic lighting spectacular.

Village items such as fishing baskets and stompers (traditionally used for storing and grinding grain) are turned upside down and mounted in multiples; soft and delicate ostrich feathers are used to create feathery floating light balls whilst recycled plastic and glass is reborn as sparkling chandeliers.
