What greater treat than to take your ease on an exquisite bench originally created for Lord Thomas Stamford Raffles, founder of the British Colony of Singapore? Featuring deep, large-scale, solid mahogany hand-carvings of royal court symbols and massive growling lion heads that require over a week of work by a single artisan, this Design Toscano-exclusive Gothic work of furniture art is anchored by an ornate center stretcher bar. Deeply cushioned, our 4-foot long bench is hand upholstered in a heraldic jacquard of gold, burgundy and navy. Whether it serves at the foot of a bed, across from a bookshelf of classics or in an entryway, this Medieval marvel is an investment in fine European styling. Simple assembly required.
