Kuba Cloth Chair + Ottoman (Vintage)
This lounge chair is a unique and striking piece, thanks to its reupholstering with Kuba cloth. Kuba cloth is a type of fabric made by the Kuba people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and it is known for its intricate designs and textures.
Kuba cloths are traditionally made from the leaves of the raffia palm tree, which is abundant in the Congo Basin. The leaves are stripped, dyed, and woven into strips, which are then sewn together to create larger cloth. Kuba cloths were traditionally used as currency, as well as for clothing, blankets, and other household items. They were also used in rituals and ceremonies.
The Kuba cloth used to reupholster this chair gives it a sense of history and craftsmanship, while also providing a stunning visual element that is sure to catch the eye.
The cream linen used in combination with the Kuba cloth provides a neutral and soothing background to the bold pattern. The small ottoman is a perfect complement to the lounge chair, providing a comfortable place to rest your feet while relaxing in the chair.
It's important to note that this chair and ottoman have some defects, which could include small wear tear, or other imperfections. However, these defects can also add character and charm to the piece, giving it a sense of history and uniqueness that can't be replicated in mass-produced furniture.
