Modern African Inspired Decor: The ‘Pretoria’ Pattern


Named after the beautiful city of Pretoria in South Africa, the ‘Pretoria’ screen design evokes the feeling of a wild, energetic natural landscape with a unifying harmony that suits contemporary decor especially well.

This decorative screen design is popular in darker colors, as bolder colors seem to suit its bold design.

A similar design with thinner inter-crossing lines is its sister design, ‘Utah’, seen here on the right.

Two ‘Pretoria’ screens line the walls here at QAQ Headquarters.

The irregular, strong lines and rough shapes of this design give it an almost intimidating, forbidding feeling, which makes it an ideal decorative statement piece when installed as a gate or in an entrance way in an urban street setting.

Here are some modern, African decorating schemes that a ‘Pretoria’ screen would work alongside with well:
