Carved Monks Seat (Mahogany)

Known as a Monk’s Seat or bench because it resembles a church pew, the panels are hand carved in floral patterns. The seat is hinged at the back and lifts up revealing an extremely practical storage area underneath. This beautifully carved seat or storage chest makes a perfect focal point as well as being a practical storage unit in the hallway. Equally at home in most rooms in the home it is especially stunning in the hallway or in the bedroom as a storage chest or blanket box – a wonderful attractive piece of practical furniture!

General Features

  • Timber is sourced from government controlled, sustainable plantations.
  • Hand crafted in mahogany using traditional cabinet making techniques.
  • Use of panelling gives a wonderfully decorative and stylish appearance but is also an excellent cabinet making practice.
  • Furniture built with the extensive use of mortise, tenon, dovetail, and tongue & groove joints.
  • Construction of our mahogany range is mainly solid mahogany but we also use selected flame or swirl mahogany veneers for panelling and large table tops.
  • Hand stained in a variety of rich mahogany colours. Or a choice of painted, durable finishes.
  • Final preparation – hand polished with beeswax (unless a painted finish is chosen) and buffed to bring out the depth and richness of the grain.
  • Handles and fitting are solid brass. Choice of either polished or antique finish. Customers may also request wooden handles when appropriate.
  • This item can be made to measure to any size – please ask for a quote.
  • Assembly: None required.

Each piece of mahogany furniture that is made to order is constructed by hand for you. It is then hand sanded and finished in the colour of your choice. It is unique to you, in other words no other piece of furniture exists that is exactly the same.

Of course this does mean it takes time to make our furniture and our lead times are longer than mass produced machine made furniture – however we believe it is well worth the wait!
