"I feel like a modern-day Livingston”. However, Noleen Kutash unlike, David Livingston, photograph and report on her “expeditions” via her blog, Travel and Trade South Africa”. Noleen is the owner of a company called Phases Africa - a home furnishing and decor business since 2001; importing a collection of exclusive and luxurious contemporary furniture and decor from Africa, to the USA. She now has her company based on the continent of Africa, and exports across the globe. Sourcing these products enables her to travel across Africa in search of unique items. Noleen has lived on three continents, and moved back to her homeland South Africa in 2008, after having lived in the United States for 25 years; with a brief stint in 2000 when she spent a year in Florence Italy, studying Renaissance art and soaking up the best of European design, traditional and contemporary. Traveling to Southern Africa and trading here is a blog for the design minded adventurer in Architecture, Interior Design, Traveling, Art, Photography, Fashion, Food, Wine, Current Trends and Events. Noleen even crosses the borders of South Africa periodically to bring you related stories from neighboring countries on the continent of Africa.
