This bench was made for a Dutch church in the sixties. It's design is simple and serene. The slats let some light through, so the shadow on the floor is not as dark. The wood has a very nice warm color. You don't see one made from solid oak very often.
Slat benches are loved for their versatility: use it as a coffee table, a place to sit, leave some books on it, or do it all at once. This bench is very firm and in an excellent vintage condition.
