It’s no coincidence that these patterned chairs are strikingly regal—they were being initially produced as thrones by the Yoruba people of Nigeria and other sections of West Africa. Every is beaded in excess of each inch of its surface area, entrance, back again, and sides—tiny seed beads are hand sewn onto material stretched above picket frames.
The perform has non secular meaning and attractive impact, and displays equally longstanding traditions and European influences. Pointless to say, each and every chair usually takes months to full and no two are just alike.
Of late, Yoruba beaded seating is coveted the earth over. We were released to our initial illustration in Paris idea retail outlet Merci’s showcase apartment (demonstrated earlier mentioned and under). Since then, we’ve been accumulating sightings, and have however to come across an case in point that isn’t amazing. Come see.
