CHAR QUARTER BENCH
European Beech, Cotton Cord
L 54” x W 22” x H 19”
Char Quarter is a contemporary take on the humble Charpai/Charpoy, an archetypal Indian rope bed, literally meaning four legs (Char= four, pai=legs).
The name borrows from the split turning method employed to create a subtle reference to the spindle turned legs, the method of wood measurement which is peculiar to the United States ( in quartered board feet instead of cubic feet), and the Indian pun for a full measure of a liquor bottle.
