This bench has matching elements with the "Black Tie Required" Dining table. It is great for a variable crowd of diners. It features a top of block mottle figured Bubinga bowtied together with Wenge Butterflies. The base is make from Wenge that is dovetailed together with giant dovetails outlined in Bubinga at the floor. There are little matching wings at the floor to stabilize the benches.Benches are also great for situations where the table is stored against the wall when not entertaining.
Bubinga (Guibourtia Demeusei) is a deep red African wood with purplish brown grain, often with striking figure patterns. It is used in furniture as solid boards and veneers, and its beautiful color makes it excellent for jewelry boxes.
Wenge is an African wood with a regular, closely spaced grain of dark brown to black color. It is both hard and heavy and works well as either an accent wood or a primary material.
