The iconic Coronation Bench that won the Best Furniture Design Award at 100% DesignSA 2017. Ideal for a larger space that lends itself to a piece of furniture looking to make a statement. Cherished by all who have sat in one.

Houtlander has developed a range of furniture based on the traditional spindle design with a strong claim to “iconic” status, and we’re proud of everything we make. We’re careful, though, not to casually describe all our products as “iconic”, because the word should be used sparingly if it’s to retain any meaning.

Our Coronation Bench is the exception that proves the rule, and we have no hesitation in claiming it as an iconic design. We’re not the only ones: in 2017, the bench won the Best Furniture Design Award at 100% DesignSA in Johannesburg. Since then, it’s been chosen as a statement piece of furniture by numerous hospitality venues with the space to do justice to its beauty and scale - and large doorways!

There’s always something special about sitting round a table with friends and family, and doing so on a piece of furniture that can justly claim the status of “modern classic” adds an extra layer of richness to the memories that are made. The Coronation Bench helped to put Houtlander on the map, and we’re grateful. More than that, though, it confirmed that our vision - to produce furniture that is crafted, considered and timeless - is in tune with an aesthetic that has growing, wide appeal.

Our Oak:

We only use sustainably harvested American oak to craft our furniture. Timber is an inherently sustainable material - trees are (ideally) an infinitely renewable resource. But many manufacturers rely on monocropped pine, or other woods, due to cost and ease. This practice destroys soil and the surrounding ecosystem. All our oak is grown and harvested in indigenous forests on the east coast of America. Trees are felled only once they’ve reached full maturity. Then they are drawn from the forest in minimally invasive ways that preserve the surrounding vegetation. It’s all about delivering a truly sustainable and stunning product.

Manufacturing Process:

Carpentry and joinery are two of the oldest crafts on earth, and furniture making ordinarily requires a huge amount of skill in order to deliver truly exceptional results. Unfortunately, these traditions are largely dying off, particularly in the global South, making great wooden furniture hard to come by at reasonable prices. At Houtlander we want as many people as possible to have access to beautiful, well-crafted furniture which lasts a lifetime. This is why we’ve combined expert craftsmanship with 5-axis CNC technology, allowing us to create perfect curves, joints and furniture features in an affordable and replicable way.
