On the bench…

Whether seeking solace in the garden or a cozy setting for two or three, we have a diverse range of benches to meet your requirements. With over 30 years in manufacture our products are renown for excellent workmanship and longevity. 

The park bench, provides, not only the classic convivial seating arrangement in the garden, it is also the spot where you put your feet up in-between planting the bulbs and pruning the roses. Lemonade in hand, you keep vigil on the hadedas above. Available as a 2 or 3 seater, the bench without arms, is the perfect bench to slide onto at our smaller rectilinear tables, where it will sit harmoniously with the park chairs. 

Cousin to the park bench is the Florence bench. Find respite from the sun on this this elegant two seater in-between harvesting the olives or meet the African sunset with Prosecco for two and the saltiness of last year’s olives. Around a table this bench fits snuggly with the popular Florence chairs.

Looking for unapologetic hedonism we proffer the recliner bench, where 3 could sink into laziness or keep it intimate at just two. Add some cushions and you will need to ensure all snacks and aperitifs are on hand as no-one pops in and out of this bench. A selection of our occasional tables become the drinks and snack table. If you’re feeling less amiable the recliner chair is an excellent solitary friend to the bench. 

Next in line is the trestle bench, less garden, less reclining and more lining the children in a row down the trestle table. The trestle bench is a handsome companion to the trestle tables, but works with all of our rectilinear traditional tables, and for that reason you can choose from a 1.5m to 3m length. In fact you can skip the table and use the bench against the wall on the stoep. A morning coffee with the hadedas or afternoon tea with, well probably with the hadedas again. 

Our traditional range benches are available with galvanised or rust frames with natural massaranduba timber. Wood will mellow to an attractive grey colour over time. Painted options are also available – choose from our 5 standard colours. See here for info on finishes.

Seeking clean, minimalist lines, the nan bench, from our 3 range is the natural counterpart to the nan table. Well suited to modern homes, your beach cottage or it could just be that bench in the hallway you sit on to tie your shoes. Available in 1200 or 1500mm this is the ideal bench for small spaces and apartments.  Frames can be powdered coated or left galvanised. Choose from our indoor and outdoor timbers, ash or massaranduba. More info here.

From Constantia garden parties to constant Gardens’ parties no bench warmers need be discontent.
