As the world adapted to unprecedented changes, many of us began rethinking our personal spaces—those corners of the world we call our own. At Mararamiro Home, where each piece of decor tells a story, we invite you to discover our collection of vintage Ashanti stools, not just as furnishings but as heirlooms of Ghana's rich cultural heritage.

The Ashanti Stool: More Than Just a Seat

The Ashanti people of Ghana are known for their rich cultural heritage, particularly in their creation of symbolic furniture that plays a significant role in both daily life and ceremonial practices. The Ashanti stool is not merely furniture but an emblem of identity and spiritual significance. Traditionally, these stools are believed to house the soul of the owner, making them revered artifacts within the community.

Spotlight on Craftsmanship: Unpacking the Artistry

Each stool in our collection showcases the unique blend of functionality and artistry that defines Ashanti woodwork. Crafted from single blocks of wood, these stools are shaped and smoothed with tools that have been used by artisans for centuries. The intricate carvings and detailed motifs often depict symbols from Ashanti folklore, each telling a story or representing a specific proverb.
