Packed schedules and digital distractions make time spent together sharing a meal especially meaningful these days. We live in a world filled with comings and goings, and oftentimes the chances to sit down and relax with family are few and far between. Bench*Made by Bassett can help you bridge the gap between quick dinners and meaningful family gatherings. So whether you’re planning an elaborate holiday feast, gourmet dinner party or a simple family meal, the room sets the tone. Make your gatherings unforgettable by seating your loved ones around a custom-made Bench*Made by Bassett dining set.
Made to Last
Our hand-built furniture is made-to-order by skilled craftsmen in the U.S. We construct solid-wood heirloom-quality furniture from Appalachian-grown maple leaf lumber. Using traditional tools and methods our artisans create a dining set that will last for generations. From the graceful curve a chair leg to lovingly hand-planed surfaces, every piece we make is one-of-a-kind.
Customized to your Taste, Lifestyle and Budget
Rustic and traditional styles come in 15 different finishes, ranging from painted white, black and chalk rubbed to a variety of natural tones that reveal individual characteristics of the wood. If you prefer a sleek, blank slate for your fabulous meals or a surface marked by the life of the lumber, Bench*Made will craft dining furniture that meets all your style needs. Four kinds of tables and a profusion of mix-and-match seating options and upholstery selections offer you shapes, colors and style that will fit your room and life-whether it’s your kitchen, formal dining room or open floor plan. You’re an original and we want your furniture to reflect your originality too.
Live Edge or Classic Edge
Every aspect of your piece is special, down to the last detail. A rare feature of any furniture is the option of a classic edge, “beauty in lines” or live edge, “beauty in curves”. These two personalities give you the option to create something that is unique to you and your family. For the live edge, craftsmen follow the natural characteristics of the wood grain to shape the edges, creating an undeniably rustic appeal. The classic edge option offers traditionalists a clean, more formal look. Choose the option that fits you the best, and the craftsmen take care of the rest. The style will stand the test of time, and be perfect for you and your family for years to come. If you want to find out more about live edge furniture, click here.
Envision your family and friends gathered together for a special holiday meal. The room is filled with delicious aromas, soft lighting and laughter. Stories are passed around the table along with the mashed potatoes, and the people you love most are connecting, sharing and making memories that will last forever. Sounds great, right-straight out of a movie. Or … the kids are fighting over the last dinner roll, your mom is complaining the roast is too dry, and your shady cousin is hitting on your best friend. The reality is family dinners can sometimes be stressful, but they will always be beautiful at a table crafted just for you from Bench*Made by Bassett.
