This pair of rectangular stools was once found in a traditional northern Chinese home. Crafted from northern elm and protected with several coats of oxblood lacquer, the stool has a simple form that blends easily with modern decor. The piece has square legs with horse hoof feet, a humpbacked stretcher and a floating panel top. The first raised stools were introduced to China in the second century A.D., when the Han emperor adopted the “barbarian” way of seating. The fashion became accepted, and within a few hundred years stools and chairs had become common among the elite. In Japan and Korea, which were highly influenced by Chinese culture, the preference for floor seating was retained. Despite their great age, these stools are sturdy. The dark patina is richly textured and completely original.
