Ngala Trading Co. Partners with Egg Designs to Introduce New Seating
Ngala Trading Company is expanding its furniture line in partnership with South African-based luxury home décor brand Egg Designs.
“Expanding our furniture product offerings has been top of mind this year,” said Lawson Ricketts, Ngala Trading Company’s creative director. “Egg Designs has been the right partner to help us expand this category; the team has deep African roots and a beautiful narrative which is exactly what we look for when representing the wealth of creative talent in Africa.”
The new seating designs being offered feature luxurious ostrich feather trim, walnut accents, and caning details. The designs mix indigenous African design with luxury details and quality that is possible by using small-batch manufacturing, according to the company.
Key pieces of the new line include:
The Livingstone bar stool, counter stool and dining chair are all made with a solid walnut timber frame inset with woven mesh rattan, finished with off-white linen upholstery and solid brass fixing details.
The Livingstone wingback chair is upholstered in linen with walnut and rattan wings which are exaggerated in size with the addition of bronze steel legs giving this chair a unique contemporary aesthetic.
The Ostrich Fluff lounge chair and ottoman are constructed in two sections which are connected via two bronzed steel brackets which are then fixed with solid brass pins. The velvet upholstered seat section and the velvet ottoman are both finished off with a colored, delicate, genuine ostrich feather skirt trim.
