An iconic piece of African furniture, these beauties are known as Bamileke stools and come from Cameroon. They’re also called King’s stools, donuts or birds’ nests and were traditionally used by the Bamileke Tribe for public ceremonies. The tribe’s woodworkers would carve these by hand from one continuous piece of wood. To do this, the lumber would first be thrown into the river to soften it up and then the ornate web pattern would be hand-carved into the hardwood.
Bamileke stools come in a variety of patterns and sizes, the biggest and most elaborate would be reserved for the Bamileke King.
