Why we love this product

Named after MV 'Savarona'

This sophisticated bench is named after the MV 'Savarona' due to its beauty and elegance. With more inspiration taken from Ben's love for sailing, the gorgeous brass detailing and exquisite colour and grain pattern is inspired by yacht design. Big enough to fit three people, this bench is perfect at a kitchen table or even at a dining table if so desired. The stunning legs are hand turned then tenoned and wedged with a contrasting wood for strength but also for a lovely added detail. 

This bench can be customised to a size that fits your space and needs. Please do get in touch if you would like to discuss a bespoke size as the AUTHOR team would be more than happy to help.
