DESCRIPTION

Antique bench or coffee table hand carved by the Senufo tribes from a single block of iroko wood, native to the west coast of Africa. The wood is tough, dense and very durable. Shown with cone style legs and stained espresso. 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.
