With sophisticated lines and a modern design, our Solid Wood Bench isn't like other home benches. We craft ours with 100% solid maple in our own sustainable Los Angeles woodshop. Its tone is warm and its structure resilient — maple is a hardy, durable hardwood. The bench will shine in any room in the home. And, consistent with the values driving Avocado, we use a zero-VOC, non-toxic varnish and handcraft our furniture to meet the highest standards of social and environmental responsibility.
Quality materials are built to last a lifetime. That’s why we exclusively use FSC® C156318 maple. Because maple is a hardwood, it provides superior durability, resilience, and strength. Maple trees also have a shorter lifespan and are available in abundance, making them one of the most eco-friendly timbers.
No matter which room features your Solid Wood Bench — bedroom, bathroom, mudroom — it will warm the space while providing durable functionality and endless charm.
Furniture paints and finishes are among the leading causes of indoor air pollution because they emit VOCs (volatile organic compounds). In fact, the Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) and particle board that is commonly used in furniture construction often contain known carcinogens, such as Urea-formaldehyde or Phenol-formaldehyde. Our Solid Wood Bench is GREENGUARD Gold certified for low emissions and Formaldehyde Free certified by UL Environment. That means the bench is scientifically proven to meet some of the world's most rigorous, third-party emissions standards for chemical exposure and pollutants, such as VOCs, formaldehyde, and phthalates.
As members of the Sustainable Furnishings Council, you can rest assured that our Solid Wood Bench is consistent with healthy, environmentally friendly living.
A lot of furniture is mass-made with cheap particle board, synthetic laminates, or veneers. Each piece looks exactly the same. That's not how we make our Solid Wood Bench. We individually handcraft each one with 100% real wood. We believe in letting the rich character of the wood speak for itself. This way, every piece is original, with its own slight variations. It costs a little more to do things this way. But our customers love having unique, durable, thoughtfully crafted furniture that will last generations.
We're proud to craft our furniture, including our Solid Wood Bench, in our FSC® C156318 Los Angeles woodshop. An FSC® certified company manages forests in a way that preserves biological diversity and benefits the lives of local people and workers while ensuring it sustains economic viability.
Avocado is a certified B Corp and a carbon negative business.

Solid Wood Construction
Made with 100% maple wood. Maple is a hardwood that provides superior durability, resilience, and strength. Maple trees also have a shorter lifespan and are available in abundance, making them one of the most eco-friendly timbers.
We do not use traditional lacquers or varnishes, which typically contain harsh chemicals and have strong chemicals that can cause headaches, nausea, and respiratory issues. Instead, our Solid Wood Bench uses a zero-VOC, non-toxic Rennert Clear Varnish. It conforms to CDPH 01350 (VOC emissions test taken at 11, 12, & 14 days for classroom and office use), as well ASTMD-4236, specifically concerning oral toxicity, skin irritation, and respiratory effects.
