The English Walnut Dining Room

Walnut is as English as roast beef—As sturdy as a steak, and twice as richly figured, it is a mainstay of the dining room, providing solid substance to all good homes.

Fortification is the theme in this collection, from the buttressed breakfront sideboard to the towering glazed display cabinet, the grandeur of the gilded dining table and the graceful sweep of its upholstered dining chairs—every piece has a strength of design as well as a solidity of build that is luxurious and reassuring.

As with most George Bensley collections, Smithfield serves up a rich mixture of styles. Employing English walnut veneers, a characteristic material of the late baroque in English furniture, its unique colours and textures add lightness to designs from earlier or later periods.
