What Have We Here ?
Weddings everywhere are momentous occasions, and one religion that displays their exquisite elegance is Hinduism. A Hindu wedding is often celebrated over multiple days with various ceremonies for the exchange of gifts, adornment of the bride & groom, and celebration of family & unity. This bench was rented by many different families, and for many different weddings, while it lived in India. The spirit of love and celebration is infused deeply into its seat.
How to Use It ?
This helpful work of furniture is light enough to move easily and can fold flat in a minute’s time. Set this bench in your entryway with shoes under it and bags atop, or in your living room as extra seating or even a coffee table. We also love this piece at the end of a bed or near a window with plants on top of its uniquely endearing frame.
Why It Matters ?
This bench was made to easily disassemble and be taken away once the crowd of wedding guests had dispersed. Many happy couples paid for the privilege of renting this durable, functional piece. We love seeing sustainability in history and in circumstances that still today mimic its original intention.
