The traditional style of meditation is sitting cross legged on the floor with our backs straight. For many Westerners and especially those new to meditation, this is simply too uncomfortable for a variety of reasons including tight hips, ankles, knee or back injuries.
Being comfortable during meditation is absolutely imperative so that the focus remains on the practice and not on your discomfort.
Designed by a long time practitioner of meditation the Stillness Room line of meditation furniture was inspired by a need to sit comfortably in a contemplative manner. Our chairs sit low to the ground to provide a sense of true grounding to the earth. By lifting the hips a comfortable distance from the floor these low profile chair allows the legs and feet to rest more naturally either on the floor or pulled up on the cushion in the traditional meditation style of the East. In addition, the sturdy back rest and pillow provide just the support needed make our chairs the perfect platform for a peaceful sitting experience.
Our furniture isn't just for meditation either. Creating a Zen retreat space is increasingly becoming a popular choice for many home owners and the natural look and feel of our furniture is well suited to creating a unique and peaceful living or sitting room. The low profile design creates a natural environment to encourage connection and communication. Stillness Room meditation furniture would also be ideal fit for a sunroom, cottage, baby nursery, yoga or massage studio.
