When I think of Japanese architecture, I think of bold designs which incorporate gentle soft curves with hard sharp edges. For me, this exemplifies balance in nature and that was the inspiration for this piece.
To make it look like this bench has been a beloved family treasure for many years we have distressed the finish...just enough to make it look well used. As with many of our pieces, we used a blend linseed oil and natural resins for a base coat and blend of linseed oil and beeswax for a top coat. These finished not only do a great job showcasing the natural beauty of the wood, over time they will also develop the patina and luster you expect in a fine piece of furniture.
Because a family treasure not only has to look good, it also has to be able to stand up to the test of time, we use the finest materials and traditional joinery techniques. Crafted from solid white oak and joined with a combination of mortise and tenon, and dowelled connections, this bench is up for the challenge.
As with all of our signature pieces, this bench was designed and built as a one of a kind and will not be reproduced.
Dimensions: 16"W x 48" L x 18" H
