A ha! An alternative to the Nelson Platform Bench and the Giverny Bench from Smith & Hawken. This Slat Bench is made of recycled teak and, at $195, is priced really well for an all-wood bench with beautiful, simple lines. We love benches because they can be used in so many different ways (seating, tables, display), in so many different places (indoors, outdoors, entryways, living areas). It reminds us a little of the one we wrote about here. At The Wooden Duck in Berkeley.
