Designed and handcrafted by Mark, this leather-upholstered bench has a timeless appeal. It's a wonderful piece to put at the end of your bed, in your hallway, or living room.
All of the joinery in the bench is traditional mortise and tenon, with extra bracing at the corners. The legs are made from cherry, hand turned on a lathe, and based on a New England design from the 1800's. The rails are made from birdseye maple. A lacquer finish covers all of the wood.
The bench seat is made of high quality leather, tanned in Germany and dyed in North Carolina. Professionally upholstered locally in Vermont, the seat is comprised of several layers for incredible comfort. The base is a webbing layer of polypropylene-encased rubber threads called "Elasbelt," which provides resilience and elasticity. This is the "gold standard" in upholstery, and is preferred over typical webbings such as jute, which sags over time, or straight polypropylene, which is too stiff. This layer is followed by three inches of foam, some Fiberfill, a layer of muslin, and finally, the soft leather cover. The result is elegance, durability and ultimate comfort.
Note: This bench is available in custom sizes, woods, and upholstered fabrics. It can also be delivered in the muslin underupholstery and ready for your own fabric.
