Grey Wooden Bench Seat with Two Wicker Baskets
Length 74 cm x Depth 35 cm x Height 42 cm
Grey Wooden Bench Seat with two wicker baskets stored underneath The seat is made from woven rush. The grey wooden bench seat has three sections each containing a grey wash willow wicker basket.
The bench is also strong enough to sit on, and to add to the contemporary look, rush has been woven in a triangle design forming three seats.
With properties being so small nowadays, we need to use all space to its full potential, and this bench is the perfect option. The floor space below your coat hooks is quite often left unused. Put one of these benches there. Use the baskets for hats, gloves, scarves, and little one’s shoes. Somewhere to sit either yourself or the children while you put their shoes on for them.

Willow baskets are very versatile. These are much hardier than many other natural materials, and can be used outside as they will survive in all weathers. Usually a stronger weave, they are very sturdy and solid. Grown in fields and by river banks as willow, the branches are stripped of their outer layer and usually treated before weaving. The end product is well suited to carrying weight although the baskets themselves are lightweight. Buff Willow is cropped mainly in November, but sometimes not until December. It is the most popular and is obtained by boiling the willows to release the natural colourant tannin from the bark into the wood. The bark is then stripped from the willow revealing the characteristic golden colour. The grey colour is achieved by dipping the basket in a diluted paint solution.
