Edna Herman. Benches. January 23rd , 2018.
The piano bench industry grew from the desire of piano manufacturing companies to focus solely on the manufacturing of pianos. The bench was, for the most part, an afterthought. Many bench companies got their start in the early 1900s by contracting with the piano manufacturers to offer benches in multiple styles that would match the exact finish and leg style of the piano being bought and sold. As the piano would move from owner to owner the bench would not always make the trip, creating a need for the replacement bench manufacturer. The other primary reason for the piano bench manufacturers existence is the fact that the piano bench is typically handled very roughly by many teachers and students alike. The constant movement and scraping against the floor as the bench is pushed in and out leads to excessive nicks, wear and tear on the bench. Proud musicians like their equipment to standout and a scraped piano bench is something that can be easily replaced and made to look like new again. Several options to consider when purchasing a new piano bench are listed below.
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 personalized dad bench will be the perfect gift that will last your dad a lifetime. There is text written on the middle of the bench. In the top right hand corner there is a small hand being held by the fathers hand. The border is covered with a vine of oak leaves and small acorns to symbolize the future. Then there is the spiritual personalized bench. This bench will give you daily inspiration with the spiritual verse that has been scripted onto it. It is a very elegant bench that is laced with a vine of ivy leaves on the border and a bird and flower motif on the legs. These are fantastic unique benches, and it will look perfect in any part of your garden. Whether your garden is big or small, it will be a great fit. Any one of these benches would be a fantastic gift for anyone. Every time the bench gets sat on, it will remind that person of you.
For a person who likes to rock or swing when relaxing, bench swings or glider benches are fun. With gliders you can sway forward and backward enjoying your coke while sitting outside. Add extra colours and relaxation to outdoor benches with a 1 piece bench cushion or 2 piece bench cushion designed for many bench and porch swings. Regardless of what type of outdoor bench your family is thinking to get, you can pretty much be assured there is several to choose from. With so many colours, designs, materials and makers manufacturing quality benches, you should be confident you will find exactly what you are looking for.
Remember that outdoor benches will still show some age, even if you apply protectant year after year, so expect a little bit of color change, no matter what kind of steps you are taking to protect the bench. Weathered Teak Of course many people really enjoy the look of weathered teak, so many of these steps will not be necessary if you prefer to enjoy the grey teak. It takes several months for teak to fade from its original light brown color into grey, although this may happen a bit sooner if the bench is an outdoor bench. Just remember that teak will always be durable and resist splitting, even after it begins to have that beautiful grey weathered look.
