Broadbean

  • 360° View Click and drag to rotate
The Broadbean is a handmade paulownia seat that makes sitting cross-legged on the floor comfortable. Having your hips slightly raised makes all the difference, and the Broadbean also encourages good posture. The Broadbean makes a great picnic seat. It is lacquered, making it reasonably water resistant. The Broadbean was created in response to the artisan's own requirement to sit cross-legged on the floor for a long time while working. It also has a secret compartment. This serves as a reminder of the artisan's skills as a maker of treasure chests featuring many secret compartments. This particular compartment could be used for sandwiches, or even a nest egg!
