  • DESCRIPTION: This original “Layek” bench is a one of a kind beauty from Java. Hand crafted from one solid plank of teak wood (minus the legs), by village artisans in Indonesia decades ago. Traditionally found in villages in Java, these benches were the perfect spot for an afternoon break during the heat of the day. It’s inclined design is the “perfect chaise” and its handsome patina and character is the result of much use and Mother Nature.  The figure of a Wayang (character from the traditional Hindu Epic “The Mahabharata” which is the basis for puppet theatre in Java)  has been carved into the top portion of the bench,  adding to the unique history of this piece. See last photo for wayang figure.
