Nigerians are unique! We are creative! And our works and skills speak for us in places that matter. A Nigerian man identified as Duro Oluwu is a designer with great influences as he decorated the Vermeil Room in the White House.
In speaking with Vogue magazine, Duro said that his aim is to create good pieces that people would always engage and never be tired of.
“My idea is to create a beautiful feast for the eyes, reminiscent of a warm and joyful season, filled with international treasures and signature fabrics,” he spoke of his work in the White House room.
It should be noted that he decorated the room during Barack Obama’s presidency in the US. He said that he was sure Michelle’s visitors would be as delighted as she is when they visit the room during the holiday season.
The composition of the room was comprised of 8-foot-tall Christmas trees wrapped with vintage African fabrics encrusted with shiny balls. There were also patchworks at strategic places in the room.
Nigeria indeed has a lot of talented individuals. Naijazzy earlier reported that 24-year-old Chibuike Ikepeama, bagged a PhD at the age of 24.
