This handcrafted Tansu style entryway shoe bench is a combination of solid Maple for the trim and top; and Cherry plywood for the insides, sides and back. It's the perfect place to store your shoes, and a great looking piece of furniture. It's actually one of my favorite color combinations, and the Maple for these tops looks great!
These benches hold about 8 to 10 pairs of adult shoes. This shoe bench looks so nice that we have had a number of people buy them to use as coffee tables - even in million dollar homes! This is why I show the rear view of the bench as well as the front. These look terrific from every angle.
Since this bench is RTA it will require assembly, but the shipping costs are much less and it's also better for the environment since it requires less fuel to transport it. We use top-notch Hafele RTA fittings with brass inserts to make all connections extra strong. And each shoe bench is completely assembled and then disassembled in the studio to ensure that everything fits perfectly! If you would like to see the assembly instructions please contact us.
The finish that we use is environmentally friendly durable water-based pre-catalyzed lacquer that sells for about $50 per gallon. The stain is a custom blend made to enhance the beauty of the wood.
These shoe benches are made in small batches in Vista, California. The wood is all hand selected for its beauty and character. This is definitely NOT assembly line furniture. It's made to be beautiful, strong and durable. We know that you can find benches that are less expensive, but you won't find a better value.
These are the last of the shoe benches that we will EVER be making. Due to the closure of a local shop that was milling some of the specialized parts for our benches our costs for making them would go way up, so we have made the decision to try other things.
