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 Monet 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. The free-flowing design of this bench is great for restful quiet moments or intimate conversations. Includes brass hardware for easy assembly.
