Whether sipping a frothy coffee on a sunny morning or just sitting to watch the joys of nature at its best, it’s all the more pleasurable when sat in the wonderful comfort of Benches and Sofas from our hand-crafted Southwold Furniture Collection.
Available in 2, 3 and even 4 seater versions to provide great seating versatility. The Benches have options with and without backs and can be used with our dining or coffee tables to make a great seated area for entertaining. They are also great as a single piece of furniture in a favourite garden spot.
The characterful designs are inspired by centuries-old blacksmith’s tradition, with a timeless antique finish that borrows elegant lines from the past. The arm rests comprise broadly sweeping curves, gracefully ending in a scroll, which echo the curved detail of the feet and the roll top back.
The seat is ergonomically designed to be comfortable, built from strips of steel precisely sized to give maximum support and allow the correct degree of 'give' as you sit down. Cushions can be ordered separately, but the overwhelming feedback from customers is that even without padding the chairs will be kind to your behind.
Hot-dipped in molten zinc to deter corrosion, the nature of the patination ensures the surface will improve with age and the vagaries of the British climate, weathering to a handsome, silvery grey. As a result, it gives the benches and sofas super durability and the designs are structurally guaranteed for 25 years. It therefore makes the benches and sofas both stylish and sustainable.
Our benches are available with or without backs, in either 2 or 3 seater sizes and a 4 seater size is available with back only. The backless benches provide versatile seating options along the side of rectangle dining tables, enabling more guests to be seated when arranging larger gatherings of friends and family without foregoing style and elegance.
Sofas have been added to our collection and offer a similar design to our benches, but with wider deeper seating and a more relaxed back profile for even more comfort. The sofas are part of our casual range which offer a more relaxed seating option for your outside space.
