Highly durable acacia wood is highly valued for its warm, rich tones and undulating grain. This stool, which can double as an occasional table, shows off the wood's beauty to stellar effect. The concept of living in harmony with nature is an underlying theme of the furniture and accent pieces from Asian Art Imports. Wally Stryk, who founded the company in 1998, and his wife, Pat, source furniture made from reclaimed wood, recycled architectural pieces, and vintage accents and tableware from Thailand and other Asian countries. These furnishings beautifully enhance even the most urban, contemporary surroundings with a sense of natureï¿½s serenity, as well as the grace of centuries of artistic tradition.
