Design company TheUrbanative debuts its latest collection, which is strongly made up of decisively African-inspired furniture. Taking cues from the forms, lines and textures of traditional African hairstyles, TheUrbanative is successful in creating a crossover between modern design aesthetics and culture-specific phenomenon. In particular, the South Africa-based firm pays homage to the historic importance and majesty of the hair in ancient African civilizations. Because of this, the pieces infuse interiors with value and a strongly meaningful presence.

The 2018 line of contemporary furniture is dubbed the 'African Crowns Collection.' It consists of seating, tables, light fixtures, home decor objects, storing units and planters. TheUrbanative completes its African-inspired furniture with "woven and braided elements" as detailing.
