If you don’t like insects, spiders or creatures with far too many legs than is practical, then look away from this Louis Henri design now! This warped bench from London furniture designer possesses a ridiculous 56 legs. The bench is 100% handmade and gets its logic-defying curved shape through a cold-curing process using thin layers of walnut sheets.

The traditional design and classic studded upholstery are at odds with the benches modern, macabre nature. Nevertheless, it’s an interesting juxtaposition. The Shongololo Bench would be a cool statement in a bar or hotel and would certainly grab visitors attention. Louis Henri is a London-based designer who specializes in opulent, high-end furniture, lighting and rugs for the home.
