Product Description

The Teak & Cane bench is a re-edition of the low teak bench designed for residential hostels in Chandigarh. The bench is a 3-seater with cane lattice seating and characteristic V leg assemblies on either end. Each V leg assembly is comprised of a long and short leg piece. A supporting crossbar runs along the length of the bench between the the longer leg pieces. The natural rattan cane is peeled and woven meticulously by hand.

The Teak & Cane bench can be used in multiple settings - as a seating bench at a dining table, as a side table to keep objects on, at the foot of a bed to keep blankets or as an accent piece.

Product Options

We offer this product in a choice of three wood finishes: Natural Teak, Dark Stain and Z4 Walnut.

For the Natural Teak finish, the wood is sanded and finished with hard wax oil to bring out the natural, golden-brown colour of the teak.

For the Dark Stain finish, a coat of water-based, teak stain is applied to give the wood a darker teak shade, followed by a coat of a sealer.

For the Z4 Walnut finish, a proprietary one, the wood is hand-stained with a water-based walnut stain and then a coat of a sealer is hand-applied.

Wood Finish - Natural Teak / Dark Stain / Z4 Walnut
