Lakeside benches are inspired by the familiar themes in nature and historic design that mark the work of architect Margaret McCurry. Benches share a common bent steel frame that recalls the traditional front-porch platform swing. One option has a steel shell seat and back with decorative patterns incised by state-of-the-art plasma-cutting technology. Standard motifs of graceful grasses or falling leaves reflect the environment and custom patterns can be created. A second option features a slatted seat and back in the form of low-tech “pickets” that make whimsical reference to the American domestic landscape. Both 67” long benches are offered in backed and backless versions. All steel parts are finished with Landscape Forms proprietary Pangard II™ polyester powdercoat.
