Pair of English Lichen-Encrusted Lutyens-Style Benches in Teak
Elegant and classical without being fussy, Lutyens benches are always a hit with our clients. Perfect in a formal garden or up against a simple green hedge, and originally designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens in 1910, these are particularly notable for their amazing lichen-encrusted surface. Although one bench has more lichen than the other, they both are stand-outs and in excellent structural condition. The photos were taken just after our cherry trees dropped their blossoms, so the pink petals brush off. Lutyens benches were originally made in two lengths and this is the shorter of the two sizes. Feel free to leave these outside and uncovered in all climates year-round and they will only become more beautiful over time.
