Antique Chinese "Kung Fu" Bench

Antique Chinese "Kung Fu" Bench


This bench is old and has a lovely wood grain to the seat and some detailed carving to the supports. The supports at the end of then bench have been replaced at some point in its life.   


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.
