An exclusive range of luxury Garden Benches, carefully curated for your home and garden.

Chelsea Garden and Home are sole distributors of this distinctive and exclusive range by Benchmark Wood Classics.

Designed and produced locally from solid iroko timber, the range is hand-crafted in Cape Town, using traditional mortice and tenon jointing throughout. The benches are suitable for permanent and full outdoor use.

Iroko timber, also known as African teak, resembles teak in appearance and is exceptionally durable. The timber does not require treatment or maintenance, and will weather over time to an attractive silver-grey tone.

Oiling is entirely optional and we use a top-quality Danish oil by ProNature as our standard oil finish, which produces a soft matt sheen and a lightly ‘washed’ appearance to the timber. The oil also acts as a sealing agent, protecting the timber, table tops in particular, from food and wine stains.

Our garden benches can also be spray-painted if required. In such cases, the unassembled components are first painted with an undercoat and the assembled bench is then finished with two coats of spray- paint. In short, the work is done properly and the bench will not require another coat of paint for many, many to come years.

Each bench design can be converted into rocking benches or swing benches, and fitted with a thick, comfortable mattress if required.

Excellence in materials, design and craftsmanship are the hallmark of the Benchmark range. Each piece is nothing short of a work of art, will provide years and years of reliable service and the outstanding quality of the product needs to be seen to be fully appreciated.

Commemorate a special loved one with a memorial bench in their honour with a personalised brass or stainless steel plaque.
