Features/Benefits
The Lutyens bench was originally designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens "surely the greatest British architect of the twentieth century".

The Lutyens is a comfortable bench with slightly contoured seat and straight/angled back. It is an instantly recognizable British classic. 

Weighing in at 33kg this is a middleweight bench made from teak wood giving strength and durability. 

The seat slats run side to side in the traditional manner. Engraving is possible on the curved top rail and the seat rails (upper and lower).

The bench is made of Burmese teakwood providing you with a long lasting, stable, strong but "soft to the touch" bench sourced using responsible natural forestry management. Teak doesn't need to be treated, it ages beautifully to a silver colour. Check out the quality of this bench is the portfolio, high resolution images will help you distinguish ours from the rest, we are not the cheapest but we are the best.

The Lutyens doesn't have any wood lamination. Lamination is used in the industry to reduce costs, it involves glueing pieces of wood together. Lamination is often seen on the back leg where there is an angle (finger joint) , on seat slats and the top/seat rails. We have seen examples of wood delaminating over time and recommend you avoid it if your budget allows.

The main mortise and tenon joints are manufactured so that when the dowel is driven into place, the joint is pulled tight. With a properly constructed joint assembled in this manner, glueing is not required.

When you receive the bench, it will be fully assembled.

Engraving
This bench can accommodate 2 lines of engraving on the top curved rail. The maximum number of carved letters is 25 characters on the first line and 25 characters on the second line (including spaces). On the front of the bench there are two rails which can be engraved. One line is best here, maximum characters 55.

The V carved letters are typically 0.3inch/8mm  deep, depending on the font type and size. This depth of carving takes a lot of machining time but the result is an inscription which is crisp, clear and readable.

Choose how many lines of engraving you require, then type the inscription above the "Add to cart" button. Finally, select your font type from the drop down list and add it to cart. 

We offer free design proof, please choose this option if you require one. 

We aim to make the letters as large as possible, for example if you choose one line instead of three, then the letter height is likely to be larger.

You can further personalise your bench by adding the following: 

  • 2d clipart carving to wood,  
  • logo carving to wood.
