    The Bamileke Throne stool is a piece or art with tremendous craftsmanship. The stool itself is beautiful and well built with quality materials. You can’t beat the price for a hand crafted work of art.

  4. K. D Aubert

    The Bamileke throne stool is simply a piece of art. It is hand-carved from a single piece of wood and painted by people from Cameroon. The finish on the stool is smooth to the touch, making it comfortable to sit on for hours. A note about the shipping – this item can weigh over 100 pounds when fully assembled. If you don’t have someone who can help you, consider renting a truck to transport it or arrange for delivery by experts like FedEx UPS and DHL

    We purchased the Bamileke throne stool and we are very happy. It is beautiful and comfortable. The only thing I would recommend is that if purchasing one that you like, to make sure you have enough room in your kitchen as some of them require more space.

    So I ordered this Bamileke Throne Stool because I saw it so many times on ultimatetraditionaldesigns.com and I really wanted one. So one day I finally decided to purchase it, after thinking about it for a long time, and boy am I happy I did! I absolutely love this stool. It’s super comfortable, feels like a seat that you’d pay hundreds of dollars at a furniture store for. You can use it anywhere, whether sitting on the bed or putting your feet up on it while watching TV or surfing the internet or reading a book, whatever you want. The height is great as well.
