Why we love this product

Seen here in a gorgeous vegetable tan leather and natural oak

This stunning sofa bench has a wonderful minimalist design. Its straight, clean lines display David's inspiration of geometry beautifully as can be seen with his other Govan pieces.

Inspired by the looming form of the Finnieston Crane, the largest remaining cantilever structure built to load locomotives on to ships for export around the world from Glasgow - The Govan collection echoes the pared back utilitarian forms of the areas once celebrated industrial might.

Designed at the David Watson workshop on the banks the Clyde, this bench is handcrafted and hand finished by skilled craftspeople using a combination of traditional and modern techniques. Bespoke options are available, please get in touch to discuss.
