Contorno Solid Wood Bench
Still waters run deep - mass is invitingly softened both visually and comfortably by the capping of a gently waved top. From the land but as calming as the sea, its contoured lines make a solid statement. Harvested from timber in the mountains of New Mexico, great Ponderosa pine logs are hand-sawn, shaped, and smoothed by local artisans, then finished per your specifications. Cracks inherent to the wood impart its rustic charm.
Naturally Unique | This style is built from a solid log of Ponderosa Pine wood. Knots, cracks, coloration and grain pattern will vary by piece. Bowties may be present. These attributes amplify the organic origins - enhancing the proportions, emphasizing the lines, and imparting character. Each piece is one-of-a-kind and may vary from the images as shown. This is the pedigree of our solid wood furniture.
How we would use it | In an entryway; at the foot of a bed
Featured In | Garden Design Magazine "Hidden Charms" - Autumn 2012
- Ponderosa Pine - Harvested primarily in the mountains of Northern New Mexico, the wood is seasoned for several months in a solar kiln and allowed to develop organic cracks and separations, which occur naturally as the wood dries and shrinks. Time may accentuate these separations, or generate new ones. This movement is considered inherent to the natural beauty of the design.
