Khun Na and her husband started out sourcing products for customers. Over the years they have seen many designs made by artisans and have been presented with sketches from many clients. They have to interpret the requested design so that it can be fashioned in a manner that the wood workers can make consistently and that is pleasing to the client from their original idea. They try to adapt existing wood workers designs to fit the clients' desires first, as that is what the wood workers know best. They find beauty in the natural inclusions and try to use them as often as possible. These designs grow from trends and ideas that they have seen over the years.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected.
Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
As with all natural exotic wood products there will be some slight variation in color, texture, and finish color. This is mainly due to the underlying natural wood tones, which the translucent oil is applied over, creating a truly unique one of a kind Functional Work of Art Products will have visible marks from tools used, patches from small repairs, knot holes, natural inclusions, and or worm holes There will be various separations or cracks on your piece when it arrives. These naturally occurred as the wood was dried and shrank. Over time, some continued shrinkage may accentuate existing separations or generate new ones. This does not compromise the structural performance or integrity of the wood and is considered inherent to the natural beauty of the design. All of our products are natural and handmade. Therefore sizes are just an approximation but are generally within plus or minus a quarter inch. We cannot guarantee the products are perfectly square or flat. We do create useable and reasonably flat surfaces while highlighting the natural wood inclusions and hand carved surface. We do not fill in or repair carving marks, or natural inclusions like knots and branch growths. Instead we sand to blend them in and assure smooth edges and surfaces that are useable. On some products we will use the same wood to fill in old worm holes and larger separations The wood is from a tropical climate, and like all wood, is still 'alive.' It will change some over time based on your climate, and whether you place the piece in direct sunlight, or by a heating or cooling source, like in front of an air vent. Small cracks may appear but this is normal and will stop occurring over time The color, after finish is applied, will vary from the pictures depicted for every single piece. This is because the oil is the same tone but the color of the underlying wood of the piece it is going on varies. Monkey Pod Wood (Acacia, Rain Tree) like all woods, has varying tones of browns in the reddish to black ranges depending on its age. The new growth, or 'white wood', ages from white to yellowish changing to light yellowish browns over time. In all of these tropical woods, mold blooms that create dark stains are natural.
I was looking for a unique side table to hold drinks next to my leather sofa. This end table looks really expensive and is definitely not something you find in an average furniture store. The table was very well packaged and there were no significant cracks in the wood as others have commented. I am glad I purchased the 26" one because the open look of it makes it look smaller than it is and I think the shorter ones would not have worked properly next to a couch with arm rests. A few notes: 1) the finish definitely appears shiny/glossy in the photos and in real life although it is smooth, it has more of a dull look, especially on the top; 2) my living room carpet (standard pile, but with plush pad) is being replaced next week with cork (hardwood-like) flooring. Although this piece is heavy, it definitely wobbles on my thick carpet. It is very sturdy on hard flooring.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes, but the finish looked duller (not as glossy) as the photo

I have been wanting to accentuate my home with a modern, contemporary and unique side table. I had to wait awhile before I could purchase it and it was well worth the wait. Incidentally, I ordered another one ( a tad shorter) and needed a taller one; but instead of returning it, I could not stop admiring how pleased I was with both and how compatable and complementative each was. I kept both and am glad I did not make the mistake of returning it. Any of the monkey pod furniture is surely a piece of art as well as a treat for the eyes. I highly recommend this piece for its attractive sense of style and functionality.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? The color was a truly, honest representation of the stool. The mildly moderate color difference only enhanced it's uniqueness and expectations.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. It is sturdy, well-constructed and has multiple options for enhancement of any room.
How accurate was the sizing? The clear, clean cut of the wood is a definitive indication of the craftsmanship. The size is an accurate representation as what is visualized.
I was a little nervous ordering this piece as a lot of reviews talked about the cracks. Well my piece had very large deep cracks in it and that is why I didn't give it a 5 star rating. I expected smaller ones but not what I got. Wood was very dull so I had to buy special oil to give it some life. I have had many compliments and questions on why I would pay so much for something that looks damaged. It is what it is and I love the look of it. You don't see pieces like this very often and I am glad I bought it.

This isn't just an end table or stool, it's truly a work of art. We have friends who are cabinetmakers and they cannot believe the quality of the workmanship or the price. It is so, so beautiful and the perfect addition to our room. Love, love, love it.

I saw a lot of beautiful hand carved art traveling through Thailand but the logistics of shipping to the U.S. were daunting. I was really happy to have this beautiful, unique piece delivered to my front door. I love the lines and curves of the carving and the tones of the wood. Great little table.
