DESCRIPTION

Antique coffee table or bench carved from a single piece of iroko wood, made by the Senufo Tribe from the Ivory Coast. The wood is tough, dense and very durable. A single two inch thick slab coffee table or bench with cone style legs.

This coffee table or bench was sourced in the spirit of wabi-sabi, a Japanese philosophy that beauty can be found in imperfection and impermanenceIt is a beauty of things modest and humble. A beauty of things unconventional. It is the opposite of vulgarity. The costs of achieving this kind of minimalism are seemingly inconsistent with its mission of aesthetic humility. 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.
