72-74 Long Street, cape town
Run by the brother of the owner of Tribal Collections just up Long Street, Tribal Trends is a dramatic boutique that sells great African furniture, housewares and accessories. Huge carved wooden tables groan under with painted masks, shell or glass jewelry and ornamental weapons. There are lamps fashioned from antelope horns, zebra skin carpets, lampshades made of feathers and ceremonial headdresses on stands. The owner has a great flair for set design and groupings of color so be sure to explore all of the rooms in the back as well. For lovers of authentic African tribal pieces, this is a great shop.
