Although most famous for their cast stone work, there are also wrought iron benches, and some of the range can be used to great effect inside the house as well as in the garden.

Straight Bench Seat

A perennial best seller, the Straight Bench Seat is a robust piece of garden furniture that is ideally used with decorative scrolled supports. Just over four feet long, this sturdy cast stone bench will look superb in a courtyard oron a terrace.

Curved Stone Bench

Again best used in conjunction with decorative supports, this bench will enhance your garden with classical style. Gracefully curved, there are two versions Curved 52in Stone Bench or Curved 60in Stone Bench.

Raphael Seat and Raphael Bench Seat

Both the Raphael Seat, that is supported by four rams couchant, and the Raphael Bench Seat, feature panels depicting the artist's magnificent grotesque Vatican decorations. Both these seats are highly decorative pieces of substantial cast stone furniture that are certain to make a lasting impact in any location. 

Chimera Bench Seat

The chimera is a mythical hybrid creature made up from parts of different animals, they underpin this delightful Chimera Stone Bench Seat that also features egg and dart moulding around its edges. Curving gracefully, this is an elegant piece of classical furniture whose appearance is so eye-catching.     

Highland Park Bench

By contrast, the Highland Park Bench, based on a Mark Salzman design, is uncomplicated and sleek, representing cast stone in a most contemporary way. 

Wrought Iron Seats

The Charleston, Regency Two Seater and Regency Three Seater, and Gothic Wentworth are wrought iron designs from the Forge collection that reflect different architectural and cultural influences, respectively the 1920s, Regency and Gothic revival periods. 

Doric Table

A fluted shaft in the Greek Doric style supports a large circular table with a Romanesque quatrefoil centrepiece. The Doric Table is very classically strong, the plinth takes its lead from the Parthenon and similar styled structures.

Dolphin Stone Table Top

Egg and dart mouldings feature heavily along the rim of this rectangular table top that is supported by stylised dolphins with gaping mouths and upturned tails. The Dolphin Stone Table Top is a fabulous piece of classical imagery.
