Unlike the figurative nommo stools used by elders, this petite stool by the Dogon peoples of Mali would have been used for everyday seating. The domed seat and base are connected by a central post flanked by two angular supports. The triangular shapes created by the supports give the stool a graphic, geometric form at odds with its richly aged surface texture. We love this stool as a display stand for precious smalls or tabletop as a sculptural object.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
