Howard Butler

Leaf Bench

Commission, Memorial

This bench will live outside making itself at home in a botanical garden. Overlooking a huge pond and surrounded by flowers and shrubs ‘ a garden full of life’ this bench will over time gradually grow into its resting place, blending perfectly with its natural surroundings.


I designed this project with a leaf being my inspiration; something that is found in every garden, and never out of place where ever it may lay.

The bench which grows

At Howard Butler Furniture we craft bespoke products made to compliment an occasion or quality specific to its investor.

– Perfectly portrayed with ‘the Bench (that grows).’



Selecting the right material for a Howard Butler piece is an essential part of developing it’s character. Knowing not only how it will look aesthetically today but how it will age and strengthen over time. Each HB creation also comes with a guide on how to keep it fresh and last a lifetime.
