Fine Furniture & Sculptural Wood Art
This beautifully crafted walnut bench was handmade by furniture maker John Parkinson in his North Carolina studio. The rails and bottom of the legs are gently curved and the seat is wrapped with a natural Danish cord. This versatile bench can be displayed in your entryway, the bottom of your bed, or paired with your dining table.
John served his woodworking apprenticeship training through the traditional British City & Guilds system. After 25 years as a journeyman woodworker, he moved to the United States in 2005 where he started his own custom furniture business in Austin, TX. He now lives and works in Durham, NC where he continues to make custom furniture.
