    African Sculptures

    Remember that paintings and photographs hanging on the wall aren't the only way to add art to your home. Statues and sculpture make interesting and poignant additions to your bookshelves, coffee table, foyer, etc. We love these authentic African fertility sculptures found through Novica—an online store affiliated with National Geographic.

    Another one of our favorite finds from Novica is this hand-woven Brazilian hammock. If you're particular bohemian you can hang it inside, but most will find it a cheerful addition to your outdoor entertaining space—the best seat outside the house!

    This Peruvian mirror was made by a local artisan in the Andes region of Peru. We love the exquisite detail and vibrant colors—this mirror would make an elegant addition to any home, and make a particularly strong statement in a powder room or entryway.

    Swedish-Designed Furniture

    Remember that the true definition of "global" even includes Europe. Scandinavian design has all but taken over in the US thanks to Ikea, but smaller boutiques and artisans are creating unique and investment-worthy furniture you won't find in every home. This Swedish leather butterfly chair already has us dreaming of cozy afternoons with a blanket and a good book.

    Rattan furniture has its roots around the globe, early civilizations have been using reeds and rattan to make furniture for thousands of years. We think this particular bed frame from Urban Outfitters has a breezy, tropical vibe, and would look great in a room full of succulents and airy white linens.

    Change up your gallery wall! Rather than arranging only framed flat pieces, mix in dynamic and textured art like this woven tapestry. This kind of piece (Joss & Main has a huge variety) would look stunning on its own hung above a bed or on a small wall that could use a statement piece to draw the eye.
