I like the bench, though I might be more likely to describe it as a bench with holes drilled into it rather than ‘circles of air’, but, hey, it sure sounds nicer…

Shinto bench

I like insanely modern furniture. The kind that makes your head spin around and wonder what century you live in. But sometimes, just sometimes, I like to cleanse my palate with some good old fashioned furniture that looks like it could have been made in the 16th century in Asia. This Shinto bench is one such piece: Its sophisticated and subtle styling blends into a modern decor since it’s handmade by master woodworkers in China. What’s more, it’s harvested responsibly from Chinese forests.
