Marked by the telltale Bamileke rounded disc seat and base, this stool is supported with unexpected carvings of currency bells. Carved out of a single tree trunk, the bells both decorate and support the seated individual. The double bells were ceremonial instruments, status symbols and traded currency. Time and use have marked the surfaces with wonderful texture that calls to be touched.

“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.”
