Adding a bench to a porch or entryway (or even a backyard) offers a decorative touch as well as a welcoming aura. It encourages friends and family members to sit down and rest or simply watch the world go by. A stylish bench placed on a front porch also enhances a home’s curb appeal. The traditional wood outdoor bench has been popular for years and easily blends into any surrounding. There are also more modern approaches to the outdoor bench that appeal to homeowners seeking a sleek, updated look. Some benches are constructed of wood while others are made of synthetic materials.
The Kingsley-Bate Boca Collection, designed by Cristian Wicha, is a modern take on picnic style dining. The backless bench is constructed using wide planks of beautiful teak and high-grade #304 stainless steel. The bench may be used as an independent piece or in combination with any of Kingsley-Bate’s stainless steel chairs or tables.
For a time-honored look, the St. James Park Bench from Eon is a beautifully proportioned traditional outdoor bench. It features the look and feel of real teak without the hassles of annual maintenance. Made from an engineered polymer, this bench is 100% recyclable and is built to last a lifetime.
