The Lobi peoples of Ghana and Burkina Faso have a deep focus on agriculture, leaving less of their time for artistic endeavors. A notable exception is their figurative stool designs. Many stools featured the head of a person who was dear to the owner, making each a beloved personal item. Charmed in its history, this carved wooden stool with connected legs is wonderfully sculptural and subtly decorated, adorned with intricately incised patterns along the seat and legs.

What They're Saying

Elizabeth Krueger | Elizabeth Krueger Design

“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.”
