We are absolutely in love with this traditional style, custom bench. The combination of the more contemporary finished white oak with the classic lines and upholstery, really make this piece unique.
Building this was incredibly rewarding. The bead profiles, the flutes on the legs, the intersecting corner blocks and the joinery that brought it all together made this piece extremely difficult. The in-progress photos below hopefully give you a good sense of the detail involved in building this piece of furniture. But as with most challenges, completing them brings a unique satisfaction.
Despite the fact that this bench looks delicate, it is actually very strong. This is largely due to the floating mortise and tenon joinery and 1 3/4" hardwood frame that is underneath the upholstery. Our hope is that we have blended strength, beauty and functionality to create something that will last and our customer is thrilled to see each time they walk in their space.
