DESCRIPTION

Beautiful rare African antique coffee table or bench. The entire piece is hand carved from a single block of wood with lovely patina, celebrating the cracks and crevices and all the other marks that time and loving use have left behind

This antique coffee table or bench 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.
