Happy Monday one and all – this week, we’re taking a little look at a big ol’ bench!
Yes indeed, it’s the rather fantabulous Eames-style shell tandem bench – 5 molded seats of multi coloured mid century magic!
A mid century behemoth in both physical size and design stature, this unusual bench is constructed of a black steel T bar on aluminium legs, featuring five coloured plastic shell seats. These details match the rare tandem shell seating arrangements designed by Charles & Ray Eames in the 1950s and ’60s, but without a definitive makers mark, we must describe them as ‘in the style of.’
But what style! Combining both the arm and side chair designs, this bench is not only rare and colourful, but comfortable and, I may say, very cool. It is also, from a practical point of view, durable and easy to maintain. Perfect for a large hallway, or perhaps even a modernist garden!
Just recently, we’ve dropped the price on this bad boy – not because we don’t love it and think it worth every penny, but because, let’s be honest, it’s rather large, and we could use the space for more beautiful items coming into stock!
So, if you like your furniture big, bold and the epitome of mid century style, then this bench is the one for you!
Have a wonderful week,
