Furniture: A bench for Paula & Rowan
My (Sal's) mum recently got re-married. It was such a special day and we were so lucky to be a part of it. A few weeks prior to the wedding, a few of Mum's closest friends reached out to see if we could help them out by making a custom bench for Mum and Rowan to use that would be a special reminder of their big day.
Their brief was that the bench was made from recycled timber, two person capacity, outdoor suitable and featured custom engraving of their wedding date.
We proposed using recycled oregon as from our experience it works really well outdoors, and is also suitable for laser engraving. The design was a slight adaption of our Jeffries chair, and is suitable to be left outdoors with an outdoor oil finish and manufactured using additional screws and suitable gaps for expansion.
The piece was delivered as a complete surprise to the happy couple a few nights prior to their wedding and hopefully they enjoy it for many years to come.
Definitely a custom project which makes us remember why we started.
Timber | Recycled Oregon with an Outdoor Oil Finish. Upholstery | Off the shelf product from Freedom. Due to client brief - we worked with an off the shelf product. This is good when custom upholstery is out of budget.
