Our newest SERENITY patent pending Asian inspired teak shower bench provides contemporary style and function for your modern bathroom with an Asian flair. This solid teak shower stool provides practicality combined a traditional zen inspired design. Our teak shower bench provides the convenience of an integrated storage and organization shelf to hold your toiletries, towels, shampoo, or other essential bathroom items. The height of 18" is the perfect height to rest your legs on while showering. At the same time the ample seat of 13" x 18" provides plenty of seating surface to sit on, whether used in the shower, bathroom, bedroom, office, or outdoors. Each teak shower seat is engineered with small gaps in the slats in the wood. This provides for water drainage so there is no pooling of water on the seat between showers.
In addition we our DecoTeak stain is a specially developed indoor outdoor stain with integrated mold and fungus inhibitors. Our stain is a deep penetrating stain that soaks into the grain of the teak wood giving it a longer life than traditional surface treatments such as teak oil. Our unique stain was developed to withstand outdoor environments such as decks and bridges where teak would be exposed to constant exposure to water. This makes it especially suitable for use within the shower which has similar characteristics of exposure to water. This combines with the natural capability of teak wood to naturally withstand exposure to water with constant wetting and drying of the wood.
The Asian styled influenced shower bench and bath chair provides a timeless elegance to your bathroom decor. Asian styled furniture can compliment either traditional, classic, contemporary or modern bathroom decors. They look particularly stunning in walk-in roman showers surrounded by rich tile motifs. As a centerpiece in your bathroom or shower, they will be sure to attract the attention of your guests. We have named these shower benches "Serenity" because of the classic spa elegance, simplicity and calm they will provide to your surroundings. Some customers have even referred to these shower stools as meditation benches.
The simple curves and clean design lines of these shower chairs and benches provide an imagery of Shinto shrines and Buddhist Temple architecture found in Japan and throughout Asia. In fact the curve of the seat on these Asia stools almost resembles some of the curved archways and Japanese furniture found of the entrances to Shinto Temples, and in antique Chinese and Japanese furniture. Some customers have taken to describing these items as Zen stools, or meditation benches when they call us. These Asia inspired benches will fit well in a decoration motif focused on Zen, meditation, yoga, and other Eastern influences in our culture we are pleased to be able to provide these Asian inspired shower chairs, stools, and benches. Although we talk a lot about shower and bath benches within our company, we can't forget that these are great teak accent chairs, small display tables, and can be used anywhere in your house, indoors or outdoors, for seating as well as display.
Even large people lthat weigh up to 250 pounds, can sit comfortably in these stools. The sturdy construction of these stools uses a combination of tenon and mortise joints for extra strength, as well as strong galvanized steel, rust resistant hardware. The thick sold teak wood is sturdy, elegant, and contemporary. The strength of these teak shower stools can be witnessed by their weight, almost 27 pounds.

We waited almost two months, since this item was back ordered, but it has arrived and I just love it. Very easy to put together. I looked for awhile for a shower stool, and this is exactly what I wanted. The quality is great and it is very beautiful. Thank you!

this bench is very sturdy and very nice looking it is a little heavy but that is good if you are using it in the bath because you don't want it to tip over or slide out from under you. i used it for the first time just sitting there and soaking my feet in the tub while reading a magazine. it was great

I purchased this bench as a christmas present for my daughter. The other evening I came home to a message from Terri at Decoteak stating there were some plugs missing from my shipment and they were putting them into the mail for me. She left a number if I had any questions. I opened the box to see what was missing, and decided to do a 'dry' fit of the bench to make sure all was in order. I did not understand one part of the direction, and decided to call the number Terri left. It was 8:00pm, and to my amazement, Terri picked up the phone. She explained the instructions and assured me the missing plugs would be on the way. I have never experianced a company who caught an error in packageing before I did and then took the initiative to correct the problem in advance. It is rare indeed to call a company in the evening with a question, and get a friendly, helpful person on the second ring. It too was pretty cool to speak to someone right here in our great United States. All I can say is if you are considering a teak product, this is the company to do business with. I completed the assembly, and this is a sturdy, high quality bench that my daughter will love for years to come...thank you Terri!
