Carved from a single tree trunk, Bamileke lattice stools were used as symbolic seats in public ceremonies. The lattice webbing represents both the life cycle and the divine wisdom of the earth spider. A stool with broken lattice was immediately discarded, the broken life web seen as a terrible omen. As a stool or side table, this spiritual object offers a sculptural mix of gentle curves and ordered grid. In natural light, beautiful shadows and illuminated pinpoints play through the lattice.

“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.”
