Most likely created by artisans of the Hehe peoples of Tanzania, this tripod stool embodies wonderful movement in its sweeping form. Playful lines drawn by graceful arched legs contrast the stool's clean, round surface. Incised chevron patterns fade in and out, clearly marking this stool's years of use. This strong, primitive form is an example of the African aesthetic that inspired European artists as they developed the Abstract Expressionist movement in the early 20th century.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
