Modern Craftsman Bungalow Trunk BenchItem#: HN-STAN2618
With a spirit as fresh and functional as the bungalows in Pasadena's historic district, the Modern Craftsman Bungalow Trunk Bench brings antique charm right to the foot of your bed. You won't need a Craftsman-style decor to appreciate this trunk bench, but it helps - try pairing it with other pieces in the Modern Craftsman collection. The trunk is crafted in the USA of maple and select hardwood solids with cherry veneers. It's finished in a dramatic Mink color that features light rock dent distressing, hand-burnishing, and charcoal highlights that accentuate the wood's natural grain. Leather hand straps and studding throughout make this trunk look like it's bound for a steamer to the Golden State.
Inside the hinged compartment, you'll find plenty of space and a linen lining to protect your items from scuffing and dust. Close the lid with the suitcase-style brass latches and have a seat. The tie-on leather cushion creates the perfect spot for pulling on your shoes in the morning.
Stanley Furniture Craftsmanship
Stanley Furniture's main objective is to produce quality and stylish furniture by using the best wood materials, construction procedures, and elegant finishes on their products to help you fashion your home decor the way you imagined. All of their furniture is hand-crafted from quality woods, incorporating other superior materials such as aluminum, glass, plastic, leather, and marble. Every joint is carefully constructed (keeping wood's sensitivity to heat and humidity in mind) allowing for expansion and contraction. All joints are held together with glue and nail.
Stanley's 30-step finishing process starts with an undertone stain that is applied to a hand-sanded piece. Next, the stain is sealed with a wash coat, then hand sanded again with filler applied to pack the wood pores and smooth out the surface. A sealer coat is then applied, the piece is hand sanded again, and hand padded to mellow the tone. From there, a luster glaze is rubbed on by hand, followed by antiquing or distressing also done by hand. Finally, after drying, each piece is hand waxed and rubbed prior to final inspection.
