The Picnic Modern Bench by Chadhaus is a contemporary twist on a classic design. Chadhaus has taken the outdoor design of the long loved picnic table and converted it into a modern bench worthy of an interior space. This hand-built bench uses seamless interlocking joints inspired by Japanese woodworking and an insane attention to the wood quality and grain. Each piece is unique, as are the characteristics of the various woods available to choose from. The bench is available in six sizes and eight finishes. The photo shows solid sycamore but we’d definitely opt for solid walnut. The price may seem a little steep for $1,100 but ya gotta consider it’s solid throughout and will last for generations to come. Choose one here.
