Magufuli armchair carved in the Makonde style, in mongongo wood, in one piece

The late African carver who was part of our team was a master of fine, small-scale detail. This can be seen from the way he expressed life in the Makonde tribe he was part of, with many interlinked characters.

This is why the Magufuli armchair is a totally valuable, unique, unrepeatable piece of luxury furniture that preserves the sculptor’s imprint and the way he was able to express African tradition and culture in the most artistic way possible.

And to this has been added the refined and functional European design, so that it can not only be admired, but also used with respect and joy at the same time.
