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.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
