Trojan Bench

Description

Description

Furnishings of ancient Greece were the source of inspiration for the Trojan Bench. Although almost no ancient Greek furniture has survived the centuries, Greek artwork such as pottery decorations and friezes depict daily Greek life in Greek homes. This has given us an accurate idea of early Greek furniture design. It was one such pottery decoration on a kylix which inspired Shah Gilani, ISFD, to design the Trojan Bench. The Ancient Greeks called the folding stool diphros okladias. Its ceremonial use and form were directly inspired from the Egyptian civilization. The diphros okladias did not have a prescribed place in the house; its role was dedicated to accommodating household guests of higher rank. These folding stools were ornamented from the beginning. A folding stool with animal legs represented a natural evolution towards curved legs, ornamentation that characterized stools of later centuries.

With its unusual design, the Trojan Bench makes a unique accent piece for residential and hospitality interiors. Robust metal construction ensures its sturdiness even under heavy loads. Upholstery is in COM. The seat cushion has 8-way hand-tied springs. Four nylon glides are provided. Custom sizing is available. The bench is offered in a variety of finishes and accents.
