Our World - Saudi Saddle

The red bedouin print curved item on the right is used as an armrest for Saudi seating on the floor.  Cushions are placed directly on the floor along the edges of a room, and oftentimes these "saddles" are placed around to use as armrests.

The above photo shows an outdoor event I attended years ago with many saddles used on the red cushions.  Below is an example of the Saudi style seating with cushions placed along the edges of the room.

I've seen them used at an embassy event here years ago.
