Beautiful antique African bench or chaise with lovely patina. Hand carved from a single block of wood, native to the west coast of Africa. Great to sit on or in a bathroom perhaps for towels. We only source the best.
This bench or chaise 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.
