England Bench 152
Designed by Skagerak Design
Reclassic pieces are second-hand Skagerak furniture.
England is a classical park bench crafted from durable teak wood. Just like the old wooden benches often found in the old British parks and gardens, England provides comfortable seating for two or three persons. The design is simple as that, slowly becoming a piece of nostalgia as it patinates over time.
The bench is in good condition - patinated with few signs of use. The armrests have been replaced and restored by our team, giving the bench a unique look by combining new and patinated teak.

- Material & product care
Proper usage and maintenance
Proper usage and maintenance is vital for getting the most out of the valuable resources we have. Our designs are made to last for generations, but just like everything else, they need a little care to get there.
Teak is commonly found in Southeast Asia, Central and South America. Our FSC-certified Teak comes from Central America, Brazil and Indonesia, while our non-certified Teak comes from plantations in Southeast Asia and Trinidad; managed to sustain a renewable and reliable supply of wood.
Teak is a heavy, hard and sturdy type of wood. The high content of natural oils makes it highly weather and rot resistant and is therefore a good choice for outdoor furniture.
Do a general cleaning when needed with a suitable wood cleaner and soft bristle brush. Rinse afterwards with clear water and let it dry. Note: Wipe off tables, benches and chairs after dinner and such with a dry cloth.
Left untreated, the surface will patinate over time and eventually turn into a beautiful silvery grey colour. If you wish to preserve or intensify the original honey-golden colour of the wood, use a suitable furniture oil on a regular basis. No matter what you choose, the wood will be resistant to everyday wind and weather thanks to the high content of natural oils.
This product is usable in all weathers, all year round. However, if you want indoor storage during the winter months, it is advisable to store the furniture in an unheated room such as a garage or a cellar.
The wood has been dried for outdoor use. Hence, if you wish to use the furniture indoors it may need to be re-tightened once in a while.
