It’s amazing how one small detail can make a piece of furniture so intriguing and unique. To give a concrete example, we’re going to take a closer look at the new table and bench collection designed by Jay Watson. The Oxfordshire-based bespoke furniture designer created the ‘Linger a Little Longer’ furniture set.The set features a table and matching benches.
Apparently, they are plain and simple furniture pieces.They are made of solid, locally sourced chestnut timber and have a minimalist design that goes beautifully with their black finish and clean, simple lines. But what makes this collection unique is not the design or the materials. It’s in fact the finish. The table and the benches feature a thermochronic finish that responds to heat. This way, the user’s body and any dining accessories placed on the table leave a mark in the point of contact.
