CustomMade Curator: Knot Bench

Here's a twist we didn't see coming! This stunning bench, created by CustomMade artisan Kino Guerin, is made from laminated wood, and yes, that's an actual knot you see in the middle, making it one of the most eye-catching pieces we've seen in a long time.

We’ve seen knotted wood before, but never like this. Whimsy and design intertwine with this statement piece, which would look great in a large entryway or sunroom. The smooth finish of the bench keeps it looking sleek, while the twist in the center adds some unexpected drama. One thing is certain -- this unusual piece is anything but boring.
