Orangerie Bench in Quarter Sawn Oak
Available now, a Made by Howe Orangerie Bench handcrafted in an oak that has been quarter sawn (making it less likely to twist and buckle) and made by one of the country’s finest chair makers. An honest tribute to the late 18th century Neoclassical style, measuring 92 inches long and 22 inches high.
The Neoclassical (literally ‘new’ classic) style exploded in popularity in 1748 when the ruins of Pompeii were discovered and this previously hidden world became suddenly tangible. Neoclassical pieces were known for their straight lines and strict laws of symmetry, decorated with simple architectural motifs inspired by Ancient Rome and Greece.
Craftsmanship and quality are absolutely central to everything we do at Howe London and we are passionate about promoting and preserving traditional skills, click here to read more.
