Coracle Bench with Storage, Walnut Wood & eco-friendly Vegetable Tanned Leather

$3,630per item


Inspired by ancient fishing vessels, our Coracle bench features a half hide of English bridle leather remarkably formed and stretched about a frame of solid wood. With a duality of function it provides both stable seating for daily ritual and ample storage for delicate belongings. Perfect for the foot of a bed or as a welcoming host in your foyer or front hall. Vegetable tanning is a natural, eco-friendly process that produces durable leathers with a remarkable depth of color and rich patina. Our veg-tan leather is sourced locally through a tannery that has been perfecting this process since 1867 - dedicated as we are to a core offering of sustainable products that are created with integrity and a rich sense of materiality. Customizations: We can customize the height of this piece to suit your preference. The overall width and length is also customizable and priced upon request - with additional lead time required for the creation of new leather and wood forming molds. For available wood and leather finishes please see final slide in carousel. Dimensions: Length: 48" Depth: 15" Height: 16-1/4"

About the Maker

Jake Whillans Studio

Jake Whillans Studio creates objects that enhance the relation between individuals and the environments in which they dwell. Our work is inspired by historical narrative and craft tradition with a specific focus on functional furniture. As a craft-based studio practice our pieces are assembled on a made-to-order basis. As such, customization and client driven options are always within the realm of possibility. We believe that the products we send out into the world should outlive us, cycles of trend + fashion and provide emotional and physical comfort for generations to come. Our materials are sourced through a network of sustainable vendors within a 500 mile radius of where we work and are chosen for their suitability, durability, and presence. With a sincere devotion to IAQ and environmental health, our finishes are limited to zero-VOC products and applied with as little intervention as possible in order to celebrate the unique richness of patina and wear - inimitable signs of life. This dialogue between past & present, form and matter - or things of the earth - reaffirms our ability as human beings to create meaning that is adaptable, hopeful, functional and beautiful. The objects that we create are a reflection of our belief in the restorative power of nature and the transformative influence of skilled artistry. We encourage you to contact us here with any questions regarding our work or practice as a whole!
