Bensen Torii Dining Chair w/ Cushion

The Torii Dining chair w/ Cushion was designed with the Japanese wood Shinto shrine arches in mind and the graceful shape is a beautiful tribute. The smooth lines and curves of the chair makes this a wonderful addition to any dining set. This piece complements with artistic aesthetics and function.

Torii is a simple yet subtly sophisticated wood chair, defined by its closely spaced back legs, broad seat, and small arched backrest. Its minimal appearance and simple construction hide a surprising amount of comfort and sturdiness, making it suitable for residential and commercial use.

Torii is the Japanese name for the characteristic wood entrance arches to Shinto shrines in Japan, and translates directly into English as \"bird perch\". This motif perfectly describes the chairs distinct proportions and traditional joinery, and the sense of harmony and calm inherent in design that is beautifully resolved.
