Evolving from the Buddhist garden tradition, where tree stumps were used as seats, garden stools have been a favored accessory in China for centuries. Beginning with a simple sketch, artisans undergo a rigorous process to create this unique seating solution. With a glaze that creates a cloud-like look, our Chinese Grille Stool features a carved design inspired by ancient Chinese window grilles. Use for extra seating or put it next to a chair as a side table. Due to the reactive glaze, the finish varies from piece to piece.
