DESCRIPTION

Rare antique African hand carved chair. Beautiful patina on the single wood back rest, with multiple motifs. This folding chair is made from a single piece of ébéniste wood from west Africa. Also called guard chair, the palaver chair is a traditional African furniture, once reserved for the African elite. We have a collection of three. The images and price reflect the one shown. 

This chair 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. 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.
