The most popular, elegant and well known pianos in the world are made by Steinway & Sons, who have a tradition of making their top-of-the-line instruments for over 150 years. Steinway however, is solely a piano bench manufacturer, and do not make their own piano benches to go along with their pianos. They in fact contract out to Jansen & Son exclusively to make benches for their products. Thus, if you are looking for a Steinway piano bench, you are in fact looking for a Jansen piano bench. A brief history about Jansen: they are an American piano bench manufacturer in Wisconsin, who have been in business for over 50 years. They are known across the globe for making the highest quality benches available, using superior maple hardwood (from the East Coast of the United States or Canada), and thick, furniture quality vinyl. Jansen is best known for their artist benches, which features their heavy-duty, silent "micro-adjustable" raising mechanism (which is the best adjustable mechanism on the market).
Leg Style. I can tell right away when the bench is a replacement bench and not the bench that originally came with the piano by the fact that most people have a bench that does not have legs to match the leg style of the piano. I may be a little bit of a stickler about this but you should be able to find a bench to match and you should make the effort to find one since it will be a part of your home for decades. Most benches are available with classic straight legs, spade legs, and sometimes antique types of legs such as Louis XIV are available. Bench Length and Width. There are three types of benches available to select from.
The wall mounted bench often has a hinged lid that can be lifted up and many of these items can be stored away. During winter months there is no place better for the storage of scarves, mittens, or gloves. Small foyer benches can certainly work for many purposes. Corner Benches At home or at work, the corner bench can do a lot to take up a minimum of space while offering a place to store items that would otherwise be hanging around all over the place. Corner stations are sturdy units that can be made of steel for the workplace and wood for the home. The numbers of shelves are optional and should be added based on the amount of use the corner bench will be getting. These indoor small benches offer the businessman and the home resident alike the satisfaction of knowing exactly where an item can be found.
However, if a teak garden bench is not in your budget, hardwood benches are additionally a terrific option and much more affordable. You can locate hardwood benches in various designs and with several unique finishes. You can easily paint a bench made of hardwood, but a teak bench must not be painted because of the oils that are in the wood. Benches made of hardwood may be relocated from one spot to another since theyre fairly light. While hardwood is not as heavy as some wood varieties, youll find it to be long-wearing and solid. Certainly a bench made of hardwood also smells great.
As it is with a lot of outdoor furniture, wooden benches are the most popular of garden and backyard benches. The most common woods for these benches are cedar, teak, pine, and cypress. Most of these garden and outdoor benches are very easily maintained, especially when made from cedar and teak. Cypress is similar to teak and cedar which also makes it very popular. All three of these woods are known for their durability and natural oils that help to keep the wood looking younger for longer. These oils also repel insects and protect from warping, rotting, or decay. These natural oils also keep insects at bay which can be positively wonderful in a garden or anywhere else in the great outdoors. These benches are also made of plastics, which also have their desirable qualities. Recycled plastic benches are virtually maintenance free and just as strong and durable as the wooden benches, which are great qualities for any occasion. These styles of benches also come in a variety of style and colors. The metal made benches are probably the least popular in the world of benches.
