Custom Maple & Concrete Benches

I designed these custom benches for a client and I got to see the finished product for the first time today!  These will go in the mudroom and front entry of a home in Park City.  Since the mudroom will get a lot of use after skiing, when everyone will want to come through the door and immediately dump all their wet gear on the closest surface (i.e. the bench), I was nervous about using a wood bench top.  So I suggested concrete.  The wood bases closely match the nearby kitchen cabinetry, and Scott at ConcreteXpressions did a great job on the tops.  Simple, modern, natural, and somewhat chunky, these are going to fit perfectly into my clients' home!



Note:  The concrete isn't splotchy, just dusty - it's been sitting in their shop for a couple weeks now...
