Inspired by the Far East, we’ve put together this wide selection of treasured finds, all painstakingly crafted with techniques that were employed centuries ago. You’ll find porcelain vases, hand-formed and hand-painted in the traditional Imperial style; furniture featuring exquisite details like hand-painted gilt flowers; and custom-framed, signed artwork.
Done right, a safari decor theme is rich and elegant. The key is restraint: Choose one or two focal pieces for visual impact, like a mirror from APF Munn in the shape of two tusks, and the zebra-striped Newport armchair from Barclay Butera. Then focus on details — finish the look with everything from sculptural mahogany statuettes to decorative horn boxes. And keep the rest of the room minimal: A subdued palette of solids, in earthy or black-and-white tones, is an ideal backdrop.
Mark Vitulano was responsible for visual display at fashion greats like Betsey Johnson and Barneys. Inventive, creative curation that blends whimsy and elegance is the raison d’etre of his career.

And, if you're feeling peckish ... we've got some globally inspired culinary options too.
