Bench with Sindhi Shawl

We love to use drapes to cover and soften the look of a furniture piece in our homes. Here’s a bench that simulates that feeling….in wood and tiny mirrors. The hand painted stain design has the paisley pattern used extensively in the Indian Sub-continent area; specifically in the Sindh region.
Many cultures use mirrors on their garments and head wear to reflect-off or ward-off the evil eye
The paisley was also successfully appropriated by the English designer William Morris during the Pre-Raphaelite and early Arts and Crafts movement in England

Material: mahogany, padauk, inlaid mirrors
