DESCRIPTION

Antique coffee table or bench hand carved from a single block of wood, native to the west coast of Africa. This one is unusually long and shown with low minimalist legs. We only source the best. 

This bench or coffee table was sourced in the spirit of wabi-sabi, a Japanese philosophy that beauty can be found in imperfection and impermanence. It 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.
