Curved Milk Bench

R 5,989.50

Getting around a table is fun and simple with our Curved Milk Bench!

Its design is based on the oldest seat- the classic milking stool.

It fits perfectly around a round table of approx 100cm diameter and can seat 3- 4 people.

The carved seat gives extra comfort. The legs are permanently joined with a round tenon joint so even though its light in looks and design it's incredibly sturdy.

When people talk about “sitting down round a table”, it’s more a figure of speech than reality. Seating, after all, tends to be linear. But since we’ve broken quite a few unwritten rules of furniture-making here at Houtlander, we figured one more wouldn’t hurt. Welcome, then, to our Curved Milk Bench, an evolution of the humble three-legged milk stool that no long-ago milkmaid could have imagined.

We took our version of the oldest jointed seat known to man - a three-legged milk stool with a circular top - and imagined it singing “bend me, shape me, any way you want me”. Three legs became six, and instead of being round, the seat became almost semi-circular and long enough to hold three or four people.

Our round wedged tenons that secure the legs survived the transformation, as did our signature carved seat, and the result is a Curved Milk Bench which adds an entirely new level of fun to that old idea of sitting round a table. It fits perfectly around a table with a diameter of 100cm, and is destined to be a talking point in any home. We might have bent some rules with this one, but as the song says: “As long as you love me, it’s all right.”

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:

Paragraph: 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.
