BRING AFRICAN SOUL INTO YOUR LIVING SPACE 

Porcupine Rocks is an African interiors studio, the go-to creative atelier for any African Interior Design.

Furniture, fabrics and accessories with South African joie de vivre are adding exuberance to British homes - thanks to some dedicated champions - says Lucia van der Post, How To Spend It.

Designer Paula Goodburn does exactly that. With her discerning eye and bold attitude she confidently marries up modern African design with traditional and contemporary interiors. She brings a sense of travel and adventure to a room by using colour and texture, whether it be fabrics or curious and unusual objects trouves. Every interiors item has provenance which adds to the original story behind each individual interiors landscape.

While we are still working with traditional craft the designs themselves are elegant, modern, stylish and can therefore be positioned in most interior scenes, be an art installation of telephone wire baskets on a wall or a beautiful screen-printed fabric for curtains.

Paula works closely with private clients, property developers and interior designers on both residential and commercial projects offering various Design Services to meet your requirements
