Item Details
This Japanese oak bench has a sturdy frame joined together by tight and strong mortise-and-tenon joints. It is exquisitely sized so that you don’t feel that the seat is too narrow or that it looks heavy. The sag-resistant high-density urethane of the cushion is both soft and supportive. The cotton that wraps around the urethane gives it a springy, fluffy feeling at first touch. You can sit down on any side and any angle or straddle it and somehow the bench makes you feel like a kid again. With all the different ways you can sit and use it, there’s something more carefree and enjoyable about sitting on a bench rather than a chair.

You could even wrap a belt around the seat and strap your feet in to use the bench for sit-ups and abdominal training – doing so before having a beer seems to make it taste better.

The L-1 ‘Furrowed-Leather’ is a TRUCK original cowhide leather. It is made from strong, thick North American cowhide that was tanned for about six months in natural vegetable tannins to bring out its texture and allow its nuance to deepen with every use. Saturated through-and-through by the tanning drum, even if scratched, the markings and colors blend and mesh together naturally.

Frame: Japanese Oak (Solid Wood)
