About BenchSmith

BenchSmith is an American owned and operated fine outdoor furniture manufacturing company with its main workshop located in historic Bucks County just outside Philadelphia in Warrington, Pennsylvania. Since 1992, our mission has been to build outdoor furniture of timeless quality and craftsmanship that is both long-lasting and a superior value.

BenchSmith offers a line of classic design outdoor furniture for individual homeownersAdditionally, BenchSmith custom crafts a wide range of special order teak furniture that is built to individual customer design and size requirements. BenchSmith has custom built furniture for prominent local and national architects and landscape designers, as well as for some of the most recognizable corporate and educational institutions in the country. Many of these professionals are repeat customers who buy large quantities of teak furniture for their clients. They bought from BenchSmith – and continue to buy from us – because after seeing our competitors, they have come to recognize the American-made BenchSmith quality difference.

We invite you to compare. Many outdoor furniture companies say they offer good quality teak products at extremely low or wholesale prices. Often such companies are simply teak furniture importers who purchase teak products of marginal quality, import it without ever seeing it, and sell the products in bulk at what at first blush may seem like “amazing prices.” More often than not, what they are selling is teak furniture of uneven quality and poor construction that simply will not stand the test of time.

BenchSmith is different. We have been crafting our furniture for over 20 years. BenchSmith furniture is built to last with exacting joinery – the key to quality furniture – we believe is the best in the industry. A growing list of designers, architects and homeowners can attest to our craftsmanship. The majority are return BenchSmith customers who have honored us by recommending us to friends, family, and other landscape design professionals. Why not experience the BenchSmith quality difference for yourself?

Ecological Statement

As one of the few "genuine" manufacturers of teak products in the United States we recognize our responsibility to the industry to source the teak we utilize in our construction process only from government managed credibly certified forests. BenchSmith offers furniture made from 100% recycled and Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified teak, to guarantee that it is genuinely reclaimed and salvaged in a responsible manner.

We source our import products from Indonesia. Teak Lumber used for manufacturing is sourced from the Perum Perhutani plantation, managed by the Indonesian Government. The government of Indonesia manages nearly 5 million acres of sustainable forests through responsible and careful forest management. For every tree felled, more than one is planted to replace it. These renewable timber resources play an important part in the economies of developing nations.

At BenchSmith we continually seek opportunities to reduce our carbon footprint and our impact on the planet. We have made it our on-going responsibility to improve the energy efficiency of our operations, minimize our waste, purchase materials from suppliers whose manufacturing practices are within EPA standards, and continue to build on best practices of recycling and donations. We will continue to make "GREEN" choices for our company, our clients, and our country.
