The Edwardian Garden Bench is a traditional design (based on the famous Luyten’s design, but not an exact replica) with ornate curves and a detailed backrest. The design is both elegant and understated, making it a perfect addition to a formal or traditional garden setting. Benchmark designs our Edwardian Garden Bench 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 Edwardian Garden Bench are 1.8 metres, 2.1 metres, 2.4 metres and 3 metres. Contact us directly if you are looking for a custom built bench.
