Antique Chinese "Kung Fu" Bench

Antique Chinese "Kung Fu" Bench


The bench has a unique carving to the legs, feels like quite a 70's vibe... this one is a bit lower than our other benches but wide enough in the seat for a ginger jar or two! 


This bench is old and has some wear and tear from its years of use. Perfect for your house in France or Castle in Scotland.


These benches were nicknamed Kung Fu benches because they were commonly found in homes, tea houses, and taverns all over China and could be turned into weapons. Kung Fu masters trained their students how to repurpose everyday objects against conventional weapons and take the advantage. It sounds boring now but in our home these hold candles and vases and sit nicely underneath some big street art. Their slim design doesn't take up floor space into your room so they can fit perfectly in hallways or wherever.
