Solid Timber Island Bench for the Kitchen, Office or Cafe

The Perfect Island Bench for Any Space

At Lumber Furniture, our journey began with a simple, yet transformative creation: the custom Island Bench.

What started as Matt's Benches in 2013 quickly evolved into a thriving business. When we introduced dining tables to our range, we rebranded as Lumber Furniture.

Today, our solid timber custom-made Island Benches remain a staple product, cherished for their versatility and craftsmanship.

Why Choose a Freestanding Island Bench?

A freestanding island bench is a fantastic addition to any home, especially townhouses, small houses, or apartments. Here’s why:

1. Maximise Space: In smaller kitchens, bench space is often limited. An island bench provides additional workspace and storage.

2. Versatility: Use it as a prep area, dining spot, or casual seating. Its mobility allows for flexible placement.
3. Stylish and Functional: A well-crafted island bench enhances the kitchen's aesthetic while adding functionality.

Perfect for Office Spaces

Our island benches are not just for homes. They make excellent meeting tables and communal benches for offices.

The Origin of Our Island Bench

The idea for our island bench came from a personal need. Living in a townhouse with a one-wall kitchen and no bench space, Matt designed an island bench for us from recycled floorboards and a metal frame.

It was a game-changer. This innovative solution led us to create these benches in various sizes, which quickly became a popular seller.
