The contemporary furniture and design is given a touch of the African life with the incorporation of African art pieces. Of course when you make trips to Africa you can bring back souvenirs, or you can obtain these art pieces from flea markets.
Including African animal prints in different decor pieces of the room is an easy way to create the African theme in your living room. The most commonly used animal prints are those of zebras, cheetahs, giraffes, cheetahs and leopards. You can incorporate these in items such as furniture, rugs, drapes, wallpaper and other accessories.
