Bentwood Bench Olympia
One day this 100 years old neglected broken Bentwood bench arrived at our workshop, it didn’t have a very promising future at that moment in time. More than one person told us to “throw it on the fire”, but we, as the owner wanted to save it. After a long journey of pampering and reconstruction we were able to restore a shabby chic sparkle to this bentwood Thonet style bench. As we love to add a personal touch to our work, we were inspired by the owner who is a professor of ancient Greek; we added a pattern on the upholstery that was copied from an ancient Greek vase. The end result is feminine, light and brings a modern harmony to the antique bench.
