The Miyake bench greets you at the front door, as a place to remove your shoes. It provides seating for two at an eclectic dining table. It shoulders your collection of art books and cocktails as a coffee table.
Before 80% of the earths old growth forest had been cleared, every beam was rift sawn, entire barns were built out of walnut. "Dunnage", the square pieces of wood used as support and padding in building, shipping and trucking, were made of high quality wood species, like oak.
The Miyake Bench elevates the unique and incredibly dense grain of this vintage wood to heirloom quality, small batch furniture. The finish is a traditional and completely non-toxic process, using a rusty nail and vinegar. Floating dovetail joints provide both solid craftsmanship and understated design detail.
