Florence Griswold Museum Benches

When a magnificent black walnut tree on the museum property became a hazard and needed to be felled, we were able to salvage the wood and create benches for the gallery spaces. These functional multi-use benches easily breakdown into single-sided benches with or without the backrests depending on the museum’s needs. The holes and live edge of the bench backrests reflect the hollowed-out trunk and extreme character of this mature walnut.
