Unlike our benches and chairs with backs, the lowest point in this seat’s curve is directly in the center, allowing you to face in either way. This bench also can be used for seating at our rectangular dining table or in area where a bench with a back would be just too tall. Add a planter box or two for a farming, nestled in effect. Expertly crafted from solid premium teak with mortise and tenon joinery for decades to come. Quality built for generations.
