Atlantico Furniture, part of the De La Espada / Autoban design firm has a “design driven by nature” philosophy as you can see by the plant stand incorporated into the Lin Pod Bench. Personally I could leave the plant behind and use the space to ice down some champagne. This cool little bench with a back that swoops down in one fluid move creates a peaceful atmosphere that connects us more deeply with nature. The 13 new releases from Atlantico are made from solid American White Oak, American Cherry, and American Black Walnut cut into planks of varying widths based on the best use of planks available. Atlantico’s furniture benefits from a painstaking attention to detail and a purity of lines that are a tribute to their long-standing passion for minimalism. I picked the Lin Pod Bench just because it was different and catchy. W.69.30″ D.23.23″ H.26.54″ $2195 Allow 4-8 weeks.
