Called a tigué in the Bozo language, this ceramic stool was given as a gift to a new bride among the Niger River-dwelling people of Mali. Seated on the stool upon arrival to her husband's home, the bride took pride in her gift, as well as comfort in its protective properties. Shaped by hand from terracotta, this pedestal-shaped stool is decorated with ridged grooves and hatch marks, and painted with brick red and ochre pigments. We love this stool’s expressive mushroom-like shape, abstract motifs, and the soft burnish that has developed over years of use.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
