these pieces were designed to be at the intersection of simple, modern furniture and utility. Intended to be used as a bench, seat, stand, shelf, or accent piece, our benches would look great at the foot of a bed, or in the entryway for removing shoes. made from a single board of hardwood, the miters are cut and joined so as to maintain the continuity of the grain of the original board. This "waterfall" effect enhances the sense of flow natural to the wood grain. Contrasting hardwood stripes add bold geometry into the mix.
