43.5″ high x 22.5″ wide x 36″ deep
African tribal hand carved birthing chair. Beautiful patina on the single wood back rest, with a carved lizard motif on the back.
This chair was sourced in the spirit of wabi-sabi, a Japanese philosophy that beauty can be found in imperfection and impermanence. It’s a beauty of things modest and humble. It’s a beauty of things unconventional. It is the opposite of vulgarity. This kind of luxury is for a select few: The Emperor of Japan had a wabi garden. Wabi is for people who already have a lot.
