For centuries, the bench was the only seating available to the common people. The simplest benches were constructed like stools. A long thick plank or split log formed the seat and four sturdy legs were wedged into holes bored into the ends. Since then, benches have evolved into an independent category of furniture implicit to shared seating, a place for conversation or a roomy single seat with additional space to function as a side table.
As the use of benches evolved, so did the materials with which the benches were constructed. Here we have our gorgeous 4' Lutyen Bench fashioned of eucalyptus grandis which was harvested in conjunction with the Forest Stewardship Council. The FSC is an organization committed to promoting sustainable forestry. Because this furniture bears the FSC seal, you can be sure that you are buying quality wood products while helping to preserve the world's forests.
All eucalyptus furniture is stained for exterior use and may vary slightly depending upon the natural grain of the wood. This bench is as comfortable as it is beautiful with its high back and rounded arms! Cushions are available for all 4' benches.
