Welcome to Tabernplace.
My name is Abi. I am a design consultant and an advocate for social justice.
Tabernplace is an interior design and products company with a brand that asserts its image in the industry with signature bold colours, energy and originality.
TabernPlace designs and products are inspired by the principles of minimalism, dynamic colours, natural elements and sustainable materials.
Our vision is to help people live in more healthy and beautiful ways. We believe in design as a powerful force for well-being and individualistic lifestyle.
Born and raised in the bustling city of Lagos, Nigeria, I grew up surrounded by bold colours and rich cultures - and very happy people.
The design style in Lagos focuses on sustainability, a holistic approach to wellbeing, and an emphasis on natural elements of light and colours.
Now based in London, my mission is to re-create, rediscover and give new context to design using the elements of nature and mood-boosting colours.
I work with small businesses and craftsmen (in Europe, Asia and Africa) to source exceptional and natural fabrics and materials to create our unique and sustainable products.
The TabernPlace designs are dynamic and minimalistic, offering schemes with bold colours, energy and originality. Our designs incorporate natural elements and sustainable materials to enhance client's heath and well-being.
'The Tabern', blog page, presents the platform to have my say on issues that
I am passionate about. These include design, food, photography and social
justice - amongst other things. And contributions from guest bloggers.
My work as an advocate for social justice aims to challenge us all to
dive deeper and view our world through the eyes of the underserved
and the forgotten. I co-founded the Humanity Invest charity organisation
with like-minded people to explore innovative ways to support this cause.
