African decor boutique Beck / Ernst open a new shop in Parkhurst

Beck / Ernst, the curators of exquisite upmarket handcrafted African decor, furniture and homeware have opened a new, expanded showroom on Parkhurst's 4th Avenue. The new, elegantly minimalist boutique is much more spacious than their original store and the items on sale are a representation of Africa's diverse cultures, from South African ceramics to carved wooden totems from Mali, Nigerian copper sculptures and Ethiopian baskets to name a few. You’ll have a hard time choosing from the variety of handcrafted statement design pieces and artworks, all with a uniquely African aesthetic that deserve a home in any house or workspace.
