Carved by hand from one single tree trunk, Bamileke tables are traditionally used in ceremonies by the chieftains of the Bamileke tribe of Cameroon. The workmanship and time taken can be difficult to comprehend, the craftspeople hollow out the centre of the tree, leaving a thin exterior that they carve with an intricate pattern. These tables are rustic in nature, with imperfections that add to their uniqueness. As wood contracts and expands with moisture in the air, cracking can occur in the wood.
Available in black, this version looks beautiful used as a side table, coffee table or even a stool.
