A choice of homeware products and designs that represent the black culture and vibrant style in a cool, classic, and simultaneously bold way, was missing on our high street retailers, and so the idea for the Chinakwe lifestyle brand was born.
Brand Originator Artist and Designer Caroline Chinakwe has transformed art into something beyond your average, everyday wall decor. It is Chinakwe’s mission to eradicate the gap in the art and design industry for modern, African, lifestyle-based creations, and in doing so, Chinakwe has interlinked those creative ideas inspired by her African culture, with Western style in its UK base.
This line is deliberately in a narrative thread with the art collection 'Colourism': vibrant colours, exotic nature-inspired textures, fearless women; intrinsically woven into their beauty, style, strength and grace run throughout the pieces. Pieces include: artisanal vintage, reupholstered chairs with a luxurious velvet printed fabric and lush cushions featuring the stylish variety of Chinakwe prints and sizes to customise with.
All homeware pieces are bespoke and made right here in the UK with local artisans. Each piece is made to order just for you, can choose a print from the Chinakwe art collection to bring a pop of color and that African inspired-edge to your custom made piece, giving you that sense of uniqueness and exclusivity that will enhance your own personal style, as you add those personal finishing touches to your home.
