Okay born a November 26 just like me, did the furniture work at 2 of my fav'restaurants in Dakar: Opium and La Fourchette..oh boy there was no way I was not going to find out about Ousmane Mbaye's work.
This self -taught designer and "rude boy" from Medina is slowly but surely taking the world of furniture design by storm. Ousmane def' sees" la vie en rose" with his great use of all the rainbow warm colors. He uses mainly barrel and galvanise iron to create his work. He's currently showing his work at the Biennale du Design in St Etienne until november 30th..if you are in the area, go suppport him:)
For those of you living in Paris he'll be in the capitale des lumieres on December 8th at the Fondation GAIA.
His work def' put a smile on my face and when I'll go to these restaurants, I'll tell everyone oh it's by Ousmane M'baye:)
Here's his website:

This is the reason why there are many people who would want to make sure that they have budget for home improvements. Renovation may not always have to be overall as this may be too costly. You may still have the chance of renovating a certain part of your home and make the necessary improvements in it. This will already affect your home greatly as a room’s look would change the way that your home would generally look like.

J'aime beaucoup cet esprit emprunt d'afrique.

Wow that looks awesome. My favorite is the chair that looks like a throne and has drawers in it.

My best, Lynn
