Beaded Yoruba chairs

These garden chairs are hand made with thousands and thousands of tiny beads. Each one takes months to make and the finished chair is a perfect example of a functional piece of art. They are traditionally used by the kings and queens of the Yoruba tribe in West Africa. All have a wooden frame and the upholstery consists of thousands of tiny strung beads laid upon a fabric backing. Great for garden chairs or in the home, and always a talking point.
