These wonderfully elegant Indian benches are made of mango wood, with a turned spindle feature (like bobbins) inset into the back with additional traditional carvings; bohemian in style and eastern in design.
Mango wood is a durable, densely grained, semi-hardwood, which is a highly sustainable, since mango trees grown for fruit need to be replaced after ten years. The benches are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, but because they are hand painted with a distressed finish, the paint will age gracefully and weather over time, possibly peeling and cracking a little, which is its patina, and merely adds to the charm.
Please choose from the following sizes:
Supplied fully assembled.
Material: Indian mango wood
2 seater-size: H:94cm, W: 115cm, D: 47cm
3-seater size: H:94cm, W:161cm, D:54cm
(For both benches, the seat height is 46cm.)
Care: Twice a year, wash with warm, soapy water and a gentle brush, avoid abrasives. After a damp winter, they can suffer a little from a light black mould, but this is very superficial and just needs a good wipe down with a sponge and cloth just like any furniture. If you want to keep your bench in tip top condition then pop under cover or in the conservatory over the damper, winter months.
