Pair of French Brutalist Carved Wood and Leather Stools or Benches


Unique pair of French midcentury hand-carved stools or benches in the brutalist tradition. The pieces feature dramatic hand chiseled wood with natural deep channeling that shows the rough character of the wood. The structure forms a X with both sides of the base intersecting and supporting each other. The seats are natural cowhide and attached to the frame by large round bronze tacks.
