  • TO TREASURE FOR EVER

  • The timber has a wax/oil finish and can be wiped over with a damp cloth and dried with a clean dry cloth.

    The leather can be cleaned using a homemade cleaning solution or polish such as using products only found in nature like olive oil and beeswax. Apply the cleaning mixture carefully and make sure to allow your leather to fully dry. Keeping to a regular cleaning schedule will have your leather looking good over time.
Why we love this product

This piece was awarded The Furniture Makers? Company, Bespoke Guild Mark no. 250

Inspired by traditional cross-legged tables, this gorgeous bench combinesÿJapanese style self-locking joints with curved legs. Originally conceived as gallery seating, theÿBeam Bench is sized for a domestic setting as hallway seating or at the foot of a bed. The rescued leather seat cover is handcrafted in Britain by Elvis & Kresse, held in place by removable stainless steel tubes making it easy to change the cover, swapping colour ways with the seasons.

In 2005, Kresse Wesling had a chance meeting with the London Fire Brigade and a very emotional response to their damaged, decommissioned fire hose. It was too heroic and too beautiful for landfill. Somebody had to do something, and those somebodies were Elvis & Kresse (Kresse and her partner James Henrit a.k.a Elvis). Over the past 15 years, they have saved all of London?s hoses, transforming them into a range of luxury accessories and donating 50% of the profits to the Fire Fighters Charity.ÿThey are now tackling their greatest ever challenge, the 800,000 tonnes of leather off-cuts generated each year by the global leather industry. We love that Katie has paired up with Elvis & Kresse to make this exquisite bench.
