@Justthegritty / Twenty20

One of the best ways to give your home an eclectic feel is to infuse your decor with finds from around the globe. Think ginger jars and woven baskets, oriental rugs and taxidermy. Scandinavian furniture can live side-by-side with Moroccan poufs and African sculpture pieces.

We found fifteen furniture and home accessory pieces that take influence from all over the world. Mix them in with the pieces you already have or give your favorite spaces a world-wide makeover with all-new influences.

    African Sculptures

    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!

    Swedish-Designed Furniture

    Swedish butterfly chair

    Nordic House

    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 Bed

    Rattan bed

    Urban Outfitters

    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.
