Medina Embroidered Upholstered Bench Black/White

Sold in multiples of 1

I love the patterns of Morocco, whether it's colourful stone inlay on a building, drops from a fountain falling on old marble or the embroidery on a pair of leather slippers. The monochrome elegance of this design came from walking on time-worn black and white marble mosaic in the medina of Fez, and I recreated that black and white pattern in Bombay Duck's signature embroidery, simply black thread on white cotton. Furniture is a newish departure for Bombay Duck - I won't design anything where I'm simply duplicating existing products already out there: it has to be better, it has to be supremely useful, and it has to add that extra something to your home in the way of colour, pattern or detail. I'm happy that this bench achieves all that. It's a cool modern update on that Victorian classic of the tapestry-upholstered bench. Ours is almost completely covered with embroidery, done in chain stitch on a hand-held machine using the traditional technique used for centuries. It's petite enough to fit in anywhere, but solid enough to stay stable, with ebony-stained, hand-turned legs of sustainable mango wood and a hand-embroidered top adding softness and colour.
