“Ethiopian furniture has beauty, texture..”
Doris Athineos, Senior Art & Antiques Editor, Traditional Home Magazine

AFRICAN ANTIQUES

Enthusiasts of the St. George Gallery antiques enjoy the abstract sculptural shapes found in the furniture such as the Jimma chairs. With the chocolate-y patina and dark and dense wood, our antique furniture feels at once contemporary and antique, and blends well with other kinds of furniture. The furniture is very textural and one cannot resist to touch the sensuous surfaces. Whether you are a new buyer to the Ethiopian antiques market or a collector, you will fall in love with St. George Gallery’s antiques that hold striking visual power.

HISTORY

St. George Gallery’s 20th Century antique furniture were individually hand crafted by Ethiopian artisans, therefore each piece is unique and is hard to acquire.
