Atlantic Outdoor Classic 2 Seat Bench with Pop-up Center Table
How often have you thought to yourself, “I love the bench in my backyard! It is incredibly comfortable, it goes with my patio furniture and I can relax for hours in it. I wish someone would come up with an attractive bench that has a table built in.” Clearly you are not the only one who talks to yourself and wonders allowed about inventions not yet made. You are also far from alone if you wish your bench could be multi-purposeful. If taking up woodworking isn’t in your future, perhaps the Atlantic Outdoor Classic 2 Seat Bench with Pop-up Center Table is.
For those times when you are relaxing either alone or with friends and family and you would love nothing more than to have a pop-up center in the middle of your bench, your moment has arrived. The best part of this is that two people, not just one, can benefit from this seemingly brilliant idea. Of course the scenarios are endless. The two people could be your spouse and you enjoying another beautiful day outside. There you are, listening to the birds singing, devising ways to eliminate the list of chores ahead of you, or relaxing after an afternoon of yard work. At the center of you both can be snacks and a couple of drinks.
As the sun sets and has been replaced by the romance and brilliance of the of stars and moon, extending your alone time with your spouse is a ‘must’. But now instead of snacks, in the center of your 2-seater bench are two glasses of your favorite Cabernet Sauvignon and a flickering candle. The conversation has shifted from plans about your shrubs and trees to how the candlelight perfectly catches that expression that made you fall in love with your spouse. You’re still reflecting, but now you both are reminiscing about the number of years you have been together, despite that it feels like only yesterday that you two met.
Can a Bench Really Do All That?
Well, this is one of those times when if you have to ask a question like that, you just don’t know the power of the Atlantic Outdoor Classic 2 Seat Bench with Pop-up Center Table. All joking aside, it takes an already wonderful outdoor bench and dramatically improves its usefulness. While you should expect the same level of quality craftsmanship that Atlantic Outdoor builds into all its furniture, add this one feature and you’ve got a bench that is not only strong, durable and beautiful but it’s also ingenious. And if you think your spouse and you are the only ones who will fall in love with it, just wait until your kids try it out or your friends and family come over. You may never get it back!
The dimensions of your classic two person bench are 35” H x 26.75” W x 55.5” D and it weighs 42 pounds. Made using acacia wood, expect your bench to withstand the elements well. This is a fairly dense wood that would prefer to live on a deck or concrete slab more than it would directly on the ground. All wood ‘weathers’ and takes on a patina all its own. After about a year your acacia bench will go from its natural blonde state to a slightly silvery-light brown hue. Leaving a bench made from acacia in a damp area, such as grass, in time might cause the feet to be slightly darker than the rest of its body. Staining will of course retard this whole weathering process.
For those times when you considered switching careers in order to make the perfect bench – one that marries the beauty you love with the function you need – for far less expensive than you might imagine, just consider the Atlantic Outdoor Classic 2 Seat Bench with Pop-up Center Table. Owning one will be akin to answering the age-old question, “Can you walk and chew gum at the same time?” The answer will undoubtedly be yes!
