We rented a house in the English countryside while visiting relatives, and I was delighted that one of the bedrooms had a pair of twin-size spindle beds. I’ve long loved their knobby legs and have found that depending on how you paint and style them, they brighten several different decors. I decided to bring that same texture and craft to a bench, and the result is the Monmouth Bench.
It’s long and slim, with a hand-tied rush seat, scalloped apron, and plantation-grown mahogany frame finished in deep chocolate brown. It would be right at home at the foot of a bed, in the foyer for putting on and slipping off shoes, or as banquette seating in a breakfast room. Also available in mahogany with a clear finish.
