The sleek, solid wood Merton Bench is sturdy, well balanced, and an excellent compliment to any room. Echoing the lines of a simple Shaker bench in minimalism and simplicity, it holds a decidedly simple and refined presence.
With carefully angled legs and a thick structured upper, this hearty handmade bench is designed to last generations. Ideal for use as an entryway bench, or paired with the Merton Table for casual dining.
