Bespoke outdoor furniture
Benchmark was commissioned to create bespoke garden furniture for Rosewood London’s new drinking and dining destination, The Terrace, which has been transformed into an intimate garden setting by award-winning landscape designer Luciano Giubbilei.
Classically pruned London Plane trees, within large decorative metal planters, grow through a metal pergola which Benchmark made, with motorised blinds to provide shelter during poor weather and when the leaves of the trees have fallen.
All the furniture, which included heated slatted benches, love benches and dining chairs, was designed by Luciano Giubbilei and acclaimed furniture designer Nathalie de Leval.
The furniture was made in natural untreated oak, so the pieces will weather and grow in character with age. Round tables in green marble further add texture and a sense of permanence to the space.
