Skagerak Drachmann Bench: timelessly classic
The idea of the picturesque, white lacquered pieces of furniture is traceable to the golden Skagens age, as artists like Kroyer, Ancher and Drachmann were inspired by the unique nature and the special light the northern tip of Denmark is known for.
The first characteristically white Skagen-furniture pieces that were manufactured by local carpenters are mapped on pictures from that period. It were these pieces of furniture and the aura that surrounded them as they stood in the pictorial nature and beautiful gardens that lead to the production of the modern white lacquered furniture from Skagerak today.
Teak wood is resistant, stable and easy to be processed. At the same time the wood is marked by a unique content of naturally impregnating oils that make the wood robust towards rot and fungal infestation. This makes it possible to position furniture made of high quality teak wood outsides all over the year without any further treatments but a regular cleaning. Those who want to preserve the woods’ beautiful interplay of colours and desire a darker shade can treat the pieces with oil.
