It is not often that a commercial showroom feels so much like home. Yet, this is what Louise has achieved with Tribal Gallery. “We have created this space with a number of special ingredients: the joy of travel, discovery, new friendships and the love of home”, she says of the treasure trove.A visit to the Gallery reveals piles of vintage hand woven carpets and textiles from Central Asia and North Africa, exquisitely antiqued furniture from Pakistan and Afghanistan and contemporary art from across Africa. “Our forte is in capturing the essence and distinctiveness of the cultures from which these pieces come, thus creating an eclectic space that is full of soul and rich in heritage.”

The Gallery also features one-of-a-kind pieces crafted from up-cycled dhow sailing ships. Working with communities on the Kenyan coast, the company salvages and transforms the wonderfully seasoned hardwoods into unique furniture.
