Throwback Thurday: A Tour of my Former Home

Happy almost Friday everyone!

I'm guest posting today over at The Relished Roost about the Great Outdoors. Head on over and take a look!

Here's a peak at my former home. I sure miss that kitchen!
I have plans to reconfigure the kitchen in our new house to get back my big center island. Mwah hah haaaaa.
I'll have to take baby steps with the mister on that one!

Loving: The Senufo Bench

Senufo benches and stools are crafted by the Senufo artisans who reside in Ivory Coast and Mali, West Africa. They are hand carved from a single block of wood.  Simple in design, yet completely unique and instantly recognizable, they are a striking addition to any room and look fabulous paired with many different styles.

I have one in my own dining room topped with a cream linen cushion.  

Take a look at how these designers have used a Senufo bench in their spaces.
