GETTING BENCHED

Garden Benches: A simple summer pleasure
I'm  smitten with the nature-inspired benches that master craftsman Douglas Thayer builds in his Westhampton, MA shop. Using local reclaimed wood from wine and pickling casks, Thayer creates stunning one of a kind benches that are both strong and modern in form. Perfect for a shady corner in a summer garden or terrace; definitely a summer pleasure!

Gorgeous! And so inspiring - I love seeing garden things in their setting so I can see how it will look in mine!

stunning benches. in my quest for all things hacienda I am thinking of using some antique mexican benches in my kitchen for seating around our larger than life table...still undecided, but I just love benches, they are so versatile.
