IMPRESSIVE LONG TEAK BENCH
One of ‘Russ’s favourites’! We find this a most eye catching and impressive long teak bench that resonates strong, sturdy and characterful furniture. Craftsmen from the past used teak wood in their construction and it’s charm is further enhanced through the natural tones that pervade. We searched and found this piece to the eastern reaches of Jodhpur and has the added character of having two lifting lids.
The trunk is solid and sturdy in construction, a vintage item of furniture that has been made using old teak wood. It has been fitted with two lifting lids that reveal separate storage compartments. Above all what helps elevate this piece is the gorgeous natural patina that resonates from the teak wood; a soft ‘honey-like’ colour.
A wonderful item of furniture that you could use in a hallway/entranceway to keep your footwear in, while also offering a place too sit and rest. However, given it’s separate storage areas, this long bench could be used in a child’s bedroom to store games and alike. Overall it is a fantastic storage solution with the added bonus of a bench.
