A Beautiful Bench Has Many Places to Be

December 20, 2013

A slat low bench can find a place anywhere in the home, especially with its easy mobility. Don’t believe us? We count off for you:

  1. As a striking coffee table (look at those unique harp-shaped legs! A mid-century modern design that is still very much in vogue)
  2. Or even positioned to complement your coffee table as an adjunct coffee table
  3. As a hallway bench
  4. As a study bench
  5. At the foot of the bed for seating, storage and style!
  6. At the entrance of your home as an entryway bench
  7. And our favorite: underneath a window so that sunlight spills into through the slats of the bench to create beautiful, interesting patterns

Our Rhyza Bench inspired by George Nelson's Platform Bench comes in your choice from 5 gorgeous woods, 3 different lengths and an optional glass top to suit your needs. Where would you put it in your home?

Fiberglass: The Furniture Material of the Past, Present and Future

April 25, 2014

Fiberglass is plastic that is reinforced by fine glass fibers or strands embedded in a resin matrix.


Fiberglass is a fascinatingly beautiful, durable and sustainable material that has been touted as the lumber of the future. Its vibrant aesthetics, versatility and beguiling tactility have bestowed upon the material a sort of casual but hardy connoisseurship that endures.

Fiberglass is lightweight, extremely robust, low-maintenance, UV-resistant, nonporous and chemically inert, which means that it will not react with other substances that it comes in contact with. The strength properties of fiberglass actually surpass that of heavier steel. It also holds its shape and color over its lifetime and has excellent impact and scratch resistance. Little wonder then that it is a favorite material for furniture. Fiberglass has a very comfortable finish and also takes on even more depth as it wears in, showing more complexity as compared to other plastics that merely look hazed and dull over time and scratches. Cleaning fiberglass chairs is as easy as wiping them down.
