The Modern Bench FAQ
What wood can I make these out of?
These are currently offered in Suar, Mahogany, Walnut and Teak options.
What kind of metal is used for the legs?
Powder-coated mild steel.
What is it, actually?
The Modern is a simple, fuss-free marriage between the traditional material of wood and the more modern convenience and aesthetic of metal. The metal legs are pre-fabricated based on your specifications and can be customized for height and width. Upon arrival, the wooden slab is mounted directly onto the metal legs via screws.
Why choose The Modern?
Clean and Updated
If these two words appeal to you, consider going with The Modern for a simple and flexible solution to your seating needs.
The Modern is best suited as a supporting actor, for dining sets or interiors with other statement pieces that you wish to highlight. The Modern bench will not stand out nor clamour for attention; it is sophisticated enough to hold its own in the overall interior decor, yet subtle enough to enhance the beauty of whichever statement piece it is supporting.
We strongly recommend a beam support be included for all benches above 1.8m, regardless of the type of joint used. At the same time, we also recommend clients carefully consider whether they want to order benches above 1.8m in length in the first place, as they can be unwieldy to use in practical situations (imagine having to stand up to leave the dining table for a moment and everyone on that bench has to stand up with you!), and often experience a sensation of flex during use.
How do I order one?
We encourage clients to come to the showroom to pick out the exact piece of wood to craft from. During the appointment we’ll also take the opportunity to learn more about your lifestyle needs and exactly what you have in mind, to ensure that what you order is what you really want! Make an appointment here.
What finishing do you use?
Our benches are currently finished with hardwax oil. The level of surface protection is slightly lower than for table tops as we expect them to undergo less abuse, and helps us save you money by reducing unnecessary costs.
If you intend to use your bench to double as some other type of furniture do let us know and we’ll advise on alternate finishing options.
