This style of furniture is now becoming highly desirable to collectors and for good reason. It was well designed. When selecting items to restore I only buy pieces I feel confidently are of high quality and I always have future investment value in mind but most importantly, I choose items I am confident will sit happily alongside other well made pieces, whatever their era.

This bench has been repaired on one of its back legs. The repair is strong and sound. The seat shows signs that it may originally have had a cushion attached which has been removed at some point leaving you free to choose your own cushion to make it suit your style. Cushions shown in photos are not included but can be bought separately. Please ask me about cushions if you are interested. The bench sits on four beautiful tapered hardwood legs. Drawers are teak with solid wood carved handles.

If you have any questions whatsoever please do not hesitate to contact me via the contact page. My name is Cate, I’m an independent furniture restorer and I’m always happy to help if I can ✨
