BENCHMARK • Little of the furniture designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens (1869-1944), the British architect whose work inspired the pool house
on Page 48, survived the years. That fate, however, did not befall the Thakeham garden bench he created in 1902. Today, it is an archetypal
form known simply as the Lutyens bench and is sold in many forms, from do-it-yourself plans from American Furniture Design Co., american
furnituredsgn.com, to licensed replicas by granddaughter Candia Lutyens at London’s Lutyens Furniture and Lighting, lutyens-furniture.com.
