This short bench from Hebei province exemplifies rustic style with its simple design and wonderfully aged surface. Constructed of northern elm (yumu) using mortise-and-tenon joinery methods, the bench features splayed legs made of scrap wood and a seat comprised of a repurposed architectural beam. Used as casual outdoor seating in a courtyard home, the sturdy bench may have doubled as a barricade to secure the home's tall courtyard doors. We love this bench for the richly weathered texture that reveals its storied past.
