This Serenity meditation chair is woven with banana leaf around a mango hard wood frame and hovers softly eight inches above the earth.
Stillness Room is an advocate for the responsible use of forest products and finishes for woods. With this end in mind our entire line of meditation products is created from mango wood and other sustainable materials. The wood used in our furniture comes from the same tree that provides the delicious and nutritious mango fruit that so many enjoy. After 20 years the mango tree stops bearing fruit and can then be harvested for timber. In addition to having multiple uses the mango tree can also be plantation grown, eliminating the clear cut practice that is damaging to the rain forests. Other materials that make up our meditation furniture are fast growing seagrass and banana leaf weaves, both highly abundant and sustainable materials of the region where they are manufactured. To seal the pieces we stipulate only clear water based finishes be used to eliminate harmful toxins which pollute both the environment and our homes. Our cushions use kapok stuffing, a natural and sustainable material from the Kapok tree. Kapok is a hypo-allergenic fibre which is mold, dust-mite and mildew resistent. Finally, our 100% cotton cushion covers zip off for easy washing. Ethically manufactured in Indonesia.
