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.
