The Curved Garden Bench is a variation of the Doncaster Garden Bench with the straight backrest. The curved wooden sections are not bent into shape, but rather carved from solid sections of wood wide enough to accommodate the curve required. Benchmark don’t take shortcuts and the Curved Garden Bench is a fine example of what makes this range of outdoor products unique and special.
Like our other pieces from Benchmark, the Curved Garden Bench is made from solid iroko timber which is perfectly suited for the outdoors. Also known as African teak, iroko is a dense and durable timber that ranges in colour from yellow to light brown, and darkens to a rich grey-brown as the wood ages. Like teak, the wood has a high natural oil content, which makes it highly suitable for full outdoor use without any form of further treatment required. If exposed to the elements the wood weathers over time to a pleasing silver-grey tone.
Oiling is entirely optional and we use a top-quality Danish oil by ProNature as our standard finish, which produces a soft matt sheen and a lightly ‘washed’ appearance to the timber. The oil also acts as a sealing agent, protecting the timber from grease stains. Oil sample colours are available to view at our showroom.
Standard size options for the Curved Garden Bench are 2.4 metres and 3 metres. Contact us directly if you are looking for a custom built bench.
