The simple design and incredible versatility of the Brookstone Testle Bench make it a perfect accent for just about any room in your home. Use it for storage, for crafts, or to display your favorite decorative items. This quality bench is available in 36- and 48-inch sizes, and is crafted from durable unfinished parawood.
Parawood is actually the wood from rubber-producing trees in South America and Thailand. Prized for its beautiful natural color, dense grain, and minimum shrinkage, parawood is often the wood of choice for high-end furniture. It is also considered an environmentally friendly wood, as it makes use of trees that have been cut down once their latex production has reached the end of its cycle.
The finish options on this shelf unit are only limited by your imagination. Leave it unfinished for a rustic, natural look, stain it or paint it to match your decor, or use your artistic talents to create something unique. Parawood takes finishes exceptionally well, and can easily be made to resemble rosewood, oak, or other distinctive woods for a very expensive look. No matter what you choose, you can't go wrong with this beautiful, durable, and functional accent piece.
