I have a new infatuation: hand beaded Yoruba chairs from Nigeria. Each one takes roughly three months to create as there are hundreds of thousands of beads embellishing these works of art that were traditionally used by the kings and queens of the Yoruba tribe in West Africa. Their floral designs and symbols denote wealth, power, strength and wisdom. It’s more than a statement piece of furniture, it’s an art piece!

Beautiful work of art!!
Beautiful! Though I don’t think I could possibly bring myself to sit in one!
Lovely! They add a special touch to the spaces for sure 🙂
Which part of yoruba is this one? is it Nigerian Yoruba?
Love these chairs and the way they add a vibrant pop of colour to each room featured.
These are SO stunning. I’d be terribly afraid to sit on them and ruin the beadwork. But they must be pretty sturdy, right??
