Vintage Mahogany Bench
A beautiful church style bench made from a gorgeous mahogany wood, with a rustic refined finish. The antique, vintage inspired bench features rounded arm rests continuing into a turned leg, adding wonderful texture variations. It has elements of a gothic church design with a tall, supportive and detailed back, yet still has an overall simple and natural aesthetic. This bench is the perfect addition to a dining set which could go either side of the table, or alternatively matched with a series of chairs, creating a fun, asymmetrical aesthetic. Alternatively it would work beautifully as an occasional seat in the conservatory or for positioning in the hallway for putting on shoes, adding a wonderful vintage, country chic feel to a modern or more traditional setting.
This piece is part of a larger vintage collection which are all made from 100% solid plantation mahogany and has undergone a finishing process to recreate good old fashioned honest sun bleached scrubbed furniture. As part of the hand ageing process there will be marks, uneven surfaces, differing grain colours and levels of bleaching. In dry centrally heated houses it will expand and contract and may cause splits and warping to the timber especially on the tops of tables, which will beautifully replicate the originals that have been copied, and transition the new pieces to a likewise state like the original vintage pieces. All of these elements add to the beauty of the pieces and create an incredibly unique addition to your home.
This product is made from natural wood and had been hand scrubbed to produce an authentic, honest vintage look. It therefore has no sealant on the surface.
If you accidently spill something on the surface please use 1/3 bleach 1/3 water and 1/3 ecover detergent and very gently scrub the surface with the grain and leave to dry - over scrubbing may reveal the redder tones of the solid wood beneath. For everyday use wipe clean with damp cloth, this range is trying to reproduce historic furniture and thus in natural wood you will get surface scratches and marks from everyday use. The marks you create enhance the historic elements and texture of the pieces. Any splits can be filled with matching colour bees wax. Excess heat, sunlight and dryness in an unventilated room can cause the wood to split so avoid placing your furniture close to heat sources. Use mats and coasters when placing hot drinks onto the surface to avoid ring marks.
All pieces have been hand crafted with traditional techniques, so individual products may vary.
