Batonga Stools [Zimbabwe]
Bursting with colours that are right up my street, Australian retailer Safari Fusion is always guaranteed to lift my spirits, and yesterday as the view outside my window gradually disappeared under a rather depressing blanket of mist and fog, unexpectedly finding myself on the site provided the perfect antidote. I love joyous happy colours and the brighter the better, so was instantly taken with some colourful Batonga stools, that are hand-carved in Zimbabwe by the Tonga, who historically reside in the Zambezi Valley region to the West and North West of the country.

Carved from a single block of wood Batonga Stools are best known in their natural wooden state. The addition of a colourful coat of paint gives them a contemporary makeover, making them perfect for modern home interiors, dotted around the space, as handy extra seating or side tables.
Batonga Stools priced at: AUD$295
