This solid oak bench is made from 100% authentic Irish whiskey barrel. By using only oak barrels this bench is very sturdy, solid and eco-friendly. The whiskey barrel used particularly for this bench was previously used by Jim Beam and later by the Dingle Distillery to age their Irish whiskey. This practical bench not only fits in any room of your home it also gives off a subtle sweet aroma of the whiskey.
The dark version is a direct representation of the whiskey barrel. It's staves are charred on one side (inside of the barrel is burnt to add colour and flavour to the whiskey) and have a beautiful patina on the other side of the staves (outside of the barrel).
The light coloured version is what's underneath the charr and patina. The staves are individually scraped and brushed and sanded and sanded and then sanded a bit more to get to the warm natural looking wood.
Put this bench beside the main door and it will be the first thing your guests will comment on. You can use the bench to sit on while putting the shoes off and store them on the shelve underneath. This versatile bench is ideal for living room, bedroom, bathroom, hallway, porch or balcony. It can be used as a high class home furniture thanks to its country style look. Modern homes in combination of the rustic warm design of the bench create a beautiful contrast.
