This delightful bench is styled after a traditional European bench of the 1800's- early 1900's. Benches of that era were usually around 6' long, so this bench provides all the charm and function in under 4' of length. It has been given a wax finish bringing out the warmth of the natural pine. The area under the hinged seat allows for extra storage as well. This bench is strong and functional as well as lovely; it is ready to be used and enjoyed every day.
