With clean mod legs and a slatted American black walnut surface, this bench/table maintains a contemporary, open feel. The pieces of walnut that make up the slats were hand-selected for their rich variation in grain, then given a proprietary, multistep oil and lacquer finish. The hand-formed and hand-welded stainless-steel frame has a satin finish that will not rust. Handmade in the USA. Guild Nines offers American-made furniture that is fresh and versatile in its simplicity. Small-batch production, talented craftsmen, and high-quality materials result in pieces that are as durable as they are beautiful, providing pride of ownership for years to come.
