The Karoo Leisure Seating is modular and consists of the following options: right arm unit, middle unit, corner unit, left arm unit, armchair unit, coffee table and ottoman. Corner units can therefore be constructed to any required configuration. All unit dimensions are W750 x D750 x H650mm, with the exception of the coffee table which measures L1000 x W650 x H350mm. Please add an additional 350mm for armrests and backrests for all seating units where applicable.
In keeping with all items made by Benchmark Wood Classics, the Karoo Leisure Seating is made exclusively from solid iroko timber. 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, table tops in particular, from food and wine stains.
Our standard cushion pair supplied with the Karoo Leisure Seating consists of a 10cm solid foam base cushion, with a tapered, solid foam backrest cushion. We taper the backrest cushions for greater levels of comfort. All our cushions are wrapped with Dacron and include a lined inner cover for easy removal of the exterior cushion cover. We use a high quality Italian outdoor fabric for our cushion covers. The fabric is machine washable, sun-proof and mould resistant, and comes with a five year guarantee against sun-damage. We can also supply backrest cushions with soft-fill inners if preferred, however this would be a custom order and one would need to contact our sales team for further information and assistance. The cushions in the images on this page are beige cushions.
