An exceptional American craft wood slat bench. An elegant, perfectly simple, utilitarian construction primarily of plain, cut boards with decorative, through-mortise-and-tenon joint at the cross-stretcher. Great from all angles with wonderful scale and proportions and an even, rich patina from years of use. A fine example of where modern meets craft; a subtle yet striking functional element.
