Martic Bay brings you the Hennell Garden Bench – a stylish and head turning American classic – this piece was part of the style of the old “Garden Rooms” of Colonial Williamsburg. Graceful and attractive fretwork create the unique patterned back of this bench.
The “style” was developed in London under David and Robert Hennell in the 1760’s. This father and son business manufactured and produced ornate high quality dishware, especially salt dishes. The pattern of one particular silver set of salt dishes made its way to Colonial Williamsburg, and it provided all the inspiration needed for the Hennell Garden Bench. It was an instant classic.
The Hennell Garden Bench by Achla Designs comes in a natural finish, shown in the picture. The bench itself is 47 inches long and 35 inches high. At its arms, the bench measures 25 inches deep. The seat surface area is 20 inches deep and sits 17 inches off the ground. Some assembly is required for the Hennell Garden Bench.
The wood featured is high grade eucalyptus wood and as can be seen in the picture, the wood bench has a clean, strong look matched by its sturdy quality. Create a little “garden room” of your own with one or two of these classic Colonial American benches.
