The purity of the design combined with the simplicity and naural beauty of the timber makes the Alfred a contemporary classic.  Note the gently tapering uprights and perfectly proportioned headboard, all made from solid oiled oak.

The mattress is available seperately.  If using your own mattress, please double check the dimensions. You will need a 150 x 200cm mattress for this bed.

Sean trained as a designer and furniture maker before joining Terence Conran and starting the small studio workshop from which Benchmark has grown. Click the image above if you would like to read more of his story...

Sustainably sourced...

Sustainably sourced...

The majority of our oak comes from the South of France.  Most importantly, it is sustainably sourced and has FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certification. Nothing is wasted. What isn't made into furniture is turned into small items such as chopping boards or stored for the winter to provide us with heating.

Oak is sturdy and durable with a rich and open grain.  Here it is treated with a clear, hard wax oil which gives it a warm, honey tone.

Oak is sturdy and durable with a rich and open grain.  We oil it with a whitened, hard wax oil which keeps it looking close to its natural, raw state.

Authenticity

Each piece of furniture we sell has a mark in the form of a discreetly fixed polished pewter disk that shows that it is an authentic Benchmark original. This is individually numbered and a record of the piece and purchaser is kept in our register.

Peace of Mind

We take pride in all our goods being made to exceptional standards but because things sometimes go wrong, our returns policy states that where a damaged or faulty piece of furniture is delivered, we will do our utmost to rectify the error as quickly as possible. If you are unhappy with your purchase for other reasons, let us know within seven days and we will guarantee a refund providing the item is returned in "as new condition" within 14 days. Unfortunately we are unable to refund shipping, handling or insurance charges, except of course in the case of any errors on our part. Bespoke pieces made to special order cannot be refunded, unless there is a fault with the product.

We are confident that our furniture will stand the test of time and offer a five year guarantee against defective workmanship and materials. However, please note that most of our furniture is made of solid timber, and you should expect it to move slightly in damp or overly dry conditions.

Please note that for pieces that are not made by Benchmark, such as Vienna Chairs and Carl Hansen Chairs, we are only able to offer a one year guarantee against defective workmanship. 

If you would like to chat through the timber, finishes or upholstery options or would like to see samples before you order, please call us on 01488 608020 or e-mail sales@benchmarkfurniture.com
