About Us

Denise Zidel owner of African Luxe
Denise Zidel is the force behind African Luxe and its Canadian counterpart Snob.  Tastemaker and citizen of the world, she believes one of life’s simplest pleasures is to be surrounded by things that have been lovingly crafted by hand. Her connection to the natural environment is why so many of African Luxe’s products gravitate towards organic forms and textures.

Denise hand picks each and every piece, cultivating relationships with the artists, designers and artisans who create these works of functional art. The products you find here are rich with culture and carry a unique story that is sure to echo throughout your home. When you admire weaving, beading or handwork you will feel this unique blend of colour and culture.

The beautiful people of Africa have expressed their abundance of energy and talent to produce exquisite products of modern design and art. Moreover these workers, craftsmen and women and designers share their stories through their work.  We hope you enjoy these pieces as much as we do.


1% of  every sale at African Luxe goes to charity.  We are a proud supporter of PLAN International’s Mosquito Net Program. Learn more on our Charitable Giving page.
