Some will claim it’s a certain intangible quality that elevates a common piece of furniture, like a bench, to a work of art. One could certainly apply this claim to the Romantic French Country Repurposed Bench crafted by repurposing artisan Scott Phillips.
“There’s an interesting dichotomy between the humble materials used to construct this repurposed bench, and its classic design which harkens back to a belle époque”, said Phillips. From looking at it, you’d be hard pressed to guess it was constructed from two old queen headboards, wood from an entertainment center, arms rescued from a broken caned back side chair, and a carved pineapple liberated from a funky wind chime.
“I like taking the unexpected, and wrapping them into my furniture in uncontrived ways,” he added. “That flamingo pink pineapple wind chime waited a long time in my shop for the right piece of furniture to come along.”
Like all of Phillips’ work, this bench’s inventive design is paired with an impeccable distressed finish that’s dramatic, yet convincingly timeworn.
This finely crafted and artistically inspired repurposed French country bench is available for purchase at Finders Keepers in Pocatello, Idaho.
