Isatu Funna is the founder of Dar Leone, a contemporary interior design brand that is sure to grab your attention.

Isatu talks to us at House of Coco and tells us more…

When did you launch the brand and what was the reason behind it?

I launched Dar Leone in 2012 as I have a very specific idea of contemporary African interior design that I wanted to convey. Much of it is influenced by the colours and textures of my youth in the Ivory Coast and Sierra Leone.

What’s your background?

I have a background in law so am largely self-taught in design.

How many people are involved in the company and what are their roles?

I am the Creative Director and general idea generator and I work with an illustrator on designs.
