The Pal bench is crafted in solid oak and fitted with a soft and comfortable wicker seat. The wicker seat is woven from natural reed fibres and integrated into the frame to sit level with the surface. The supporting frame is available in light oiled oak, black painted oak and smoked oak, just like for its other stool pal. Part of the character of the Pal series is formed by the relationship between natural materials and craft techniques, which make each object one-of-a-kind. The legs rise to the full height of the seat, creating a simple, yet striking, profile as they sit alongside the frame rather than underneath it. Pal is always ready to provide seating when friends gather around, or a good and soft place to sit alone to contemplate in your hallway, bedroom or anywhere else you hang around. When not in use it provides a surface for your everyday mess or maybe a glossy magazine.
