The Currey Leagrave Outdoor Bench is a classic English garden bench. It is crafted with a smoothly-finished concrete construction. The style of this bench is elegant, but has a hard side to it. Crafted with a steel frame and layers of concrete, it will provide years of enjoyment for you.
Faux Bois – from the French for false wood – refers to the artistic imitation of wood or wood grains in various media. The craft has roots in the Renaissance with trompe-l’œil. Creating these works is at once complex, technically demanding and extraordinarily labor intensive. It involves first building a steel framework, referred to by sculptors as an “armature”, securing and forming metal mesh known as “lath”, then building up multiple layers of concrete, mortar and often pure cement paste. All the while, shaping, sculpting and detailing the material as it hardens.
