Mixed materials and maximum impact. The Coorg Bench pairs a patinaed, brushed nickel X base with a smoky, reclaimed teak top to create a modern-yet-rustic interpretation of the classic mixed-material bench. The reclaimed teak used to hand-build the Coorg Bench originates from bridges, homes and other buildings throughout India, most dating back to the colonial era, and was salvaged prior to demolition of the structure. During the salvaging process, nails or bolts are removed from the naturally durable wood, and any large holes are patched with smaller wood pieces. Knotholes, slight cracks and indentations can be expected and do not compromise the pieceÕs structural integrity, but rather add character to the design. Due to the construction process and materials, slight variations that enhance the piece's character should be expected.
