Acacia is based off of Africa’s native tree the acacia tree. Some might be familiar with its famous silhouette that is often depicted in many motifs and scenery related to the African desert. What many aren’t familiar with is this tree’s blooming flowers in various tones ranging from coral red to golden yellow. This pattern depicts a whimsical monkey perched atop its branches enjoying the shade.
Ardmore cameos is a fun light hearted print depicting the wildlife found within Northern Africa in a vintage ‘family portrait’ side view profile. Surrounding these frames in luscious greenery and succulent vines.
Jabu is actually named after one of Ardmore’s finest sculptors Jabu Nene. Jabu is well known for her rhino sculptures that she would make by hand using gorgeous dazzling colors and intricate tribal patterns. This wallpaper captures the essence of her art, for your walls.
Khulu Vases is a gorgeous depiction of pottery mixed with wildlife. This almost fantasy like mixture is truly mystifying. We love the deep and vibrant shades used for this wallpaper. “Khulu” means “most important” and we’d say this is fitting for this paper.
Narina is a small scale all over print depicting bird feathers tiled downward. As pictured above, if being used in a split paper wall interior design, it can compliment another pattern nicely. However, this pattern also looks great on its own if you’re looking for a highly textured visual.
Leopard Walk & Zulu Border
The leopard is often known as the wise king, in the sense it is one of the most adaptable predators in the wild. Leopard Walk uses cascading profile views of leopards to provide a pleasant large scale print in gorgeous earth tones inspired by Northern Africa’s landscape. For those looking for a leopard print with ornamental African inspired trim, the Zulu Border pairs exceptionally.
Matrinah is a stylish and charming print similar to Ardmore Cameros that depicts the different wild life in a similar fashion, using different patterned and oriented frames. In the background you notice silhouettes of gorgeous sculpture vases.
Safari Dance is a celebration of tradition, and a nod to the animals that make up this particular kingdom. Elephants with exotic patterns and coloring pictured rejoicing together in a beautiful sight.
Savuti is an allover print depicting playful monkeys and birds playing amongst the branches in gorgeous popping color schemes.
Senzo Spot is a small scale geometric interpretation of leopard or giraffe print. The unexpected color combinations of this wallpaper can truly bring a room to life.
Singita paints a vivid scene of a dense luscious jungle forest. If you look closely you can spot wildlife such as small monkeys. The geometric patterns found within the foliage really give this large scale wallpaper depth and texture.
Zambezi depicts native African animals softly floating down the Zambezi river. This fun light hearted print is ideal for a child’s room or kitchen setting.

Our story begins in 1987 when founder and designer Frank Keshishian launched L.A. Design Concepts a residential interior design firm.
While Mr. Keshishian designed homes for his clients, he recognized a fast growing market of consumers who preferred to make their own design decisions. Understanding that desire, Frank created the first design service offering consumer access to designer "trade only" furnishings.
In 1988, L.A. Design Concepts was nationally recognized as a groundbreaking company revolutionizing consumer access. The Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles was very intrigued with L. A. Design Concepts working model and approached Frank in 1990 to formulate a consumer service program within their design center. L.A. Design Concepts was now the first service within a design center providing consumer access to Ã¢â‚¬Å“trade onlyÃ¯Â¿Â½? furnishings. Shortly thereafter, an increasing number of interior designers and architects recognized the value of streamlining their access through one single source. Our service allowed designers to focus on designing for their clients without having to maintain accounts with each individual manufacturer.
