Our exclusive new line of furniture includes the two-person gathering bench, made to order from solid Black Walnut wood by expert American craftspeople. Also available in White Oak. Pairs with our Trestle Dining Table and Rung Chairs. (
This two-person bench is made from solid Black Walnut wood by respected American woodworkers in New York. The simple form, developed exclusively by us, was inspired by the clean lines of Scandinavian design, the pared-down aesthetic of Danish mid-century modern, and the restraint of Japanese minimalism. Drawing on the precision workmanship of Shaker carpentry, the Kaufmann Gathering Bench is a celebration of traditional American craftsmanship, made to order entirely in the United States. Each is distinguished by a subtle diamond form that gently curves out from the center of the back rung.
Place the bench in your entryway as an elegant spot to sit while lacing up your boots and preparing to go outside. Rest a few decorative baskets along one end and line up shoes or store small sporting goods underneath. Slim in size, the bench also fits nicely in a hallway or bedroom. At the dinner table, it provides two comfortable seats for welcoming extra guests.
This bench arrives fully assembled and ready to use. The Black Walnut, finished with mineral oil and natural beeswax, will age beautifully with time.
Surfaces should be wiped clean with a lightly dampened cloth. Small scratches, scuffs and rings can be lightly buffed out with extra fine steel wool, then more mineral oil can be applied to the area with a soft cloth.
Avoid getting the bench wet to prevent stains; if liquids do come in contact with the wood, any staining can be removed by refinishing the surface.
Please note that this bench and all made-to-order furniture cannot be returned. Any requests for custom modifications to this piece will have a longer lead time for development and production, and the price will be adjusted accordingly.
