High/Low: Which Chippendale Would You Choose?

May 8, 2013
There's nothing like neoclassical romance in the garden; an artfully placed bench under a tree or against a wall is an irresistible invitation. Given a choice, which Chippendale-inspired outdoor garden bench would you choose?

Above: The Saltram Garden Bench is a reproduction, made from English oak, of a piece from Saltram House in Plymouth, Devon. The house was remodeled by the 18th century neoclassical Scottish architect Robert Adam; he hired Thomas Chippendale to make many of the furniture pieces. The 70.75-inch-long bench is £2,800 from Jamb Limited.

Above: A 19th C. Chippendale Bench made of teak with a weathered finish features Chinoiserie fretwork and scrolled arms; 70 inches long, it is currently on sale for $1,510 from Restoration Hardware.
