At City Bench, we create singular furniture from city trees with designs that “keep the tree in the wood.”  We react to each slab and the story behind it to build objects that connect people back to place.  Each piece comes with a “story of origin,” and sometimes a street address.  City Bench was started to tell stories through soulful objects and highlight an overlooked urban resource.  More about Our Story.

OUR NEWS

We built a big wall last week. (click here to see more photos)

It was installed at the future home of Newman’s Own in Westport, CT. 21 species of wood were used from around Connecticut. (We are also building their boardroom table from a large maple that came down in Westport. Look for it in May! )
