Possible Bench for Purchase

terrencefieldsSeptember 9, 2010

Hey, I just have a quick question about a bench I am thinking about getting. I have recently noticed that the outdoors of my house seem rather, well, dead, despite all the nature. Therefore, I decided to get a wooden bench to spice things up and give me a place to sit down.

I was reading about a Strawthwood bench and it seems to be a good option. All of the qualities are what I am looking for, and the price is right. But is there anything better out there? I'm not an expert on this kind of stuff so I figured it would be good to ask in a forum that specializes in furniture.

Teak is the premier wood for outdoor furniture. This site has some lovely benches...I love the styles and in particular the marlboro bench.
I think the bench you linked to lacks style and is very plain looking.

i agree, get teak. but completely disagree with the aesthetic critique. it's an elegant looking bench with strong lines. perfect for those of us not interested in superfluous fluff.
