Benchmark Contract Furniture, a provider of furniture and design solutions for public spaces, introduces a new collection of contemporary, flexible furniture and accessories. The Monarch Collection—designed as cohesive solutions for public spaces—includes seating, tables and receptacles that can be mixed and matched in a variety of finishes and colors, adaptable to both indoor and outdoor environments.
The Monarch Collection includes flexible furniture pieces that strike the perfect balance between rational design and bold presence. Geometric shapes meld with modern curves for pieces with a sculptural soul and playful personality. Manufactured in North America using 100% aluminum, the pieces are sustainable and durable for both indoor and outdoor uses.
The furniture pieces can be customized in a spectrum of powder coat colors and finishes, as well as sublimated graphics and designs. Upholstered chairs and stools are friendly, comfortable sitting options.
“Monarch was designed by our internal team of designers, and when we began the process we agreed on several things,” said Mark Carroll, president of Benchmark Contract Furniture. “The pieces needed to be understated, clean, contemporary and functional, while incorporating details that set them apart and gave them personality.”
The versatile Monarch Collection is designed for any of the pieces to be mixed or matched and work together in a space in myriad layouts, or bring a space to life by working individually with other furnishings. The modern designs interpret familiar forms with new shapes and thoughtful lines, suggesting a playful personality. Monarch is set apart by its endurance and performance in diverse weather environments and in high-use spaces. This collection blurs the lines between outdoors and indoors with balanced proportions and sustainable materials.
Each piece in the collection can be endlessly customized. For example, the Monarch Barrel seat design, which is available in a backless option as well, can be made in three heights—dining, counter or bar height. Each chair can be finished in any color or combination of colors, and sublimated graphics can be applied to any surface. Additionally, the seat can be upholstered in any indoor or outdoor fabric of choice for added comfort and to seamlessly fit into the design story for a space.
“Monarch is comfortable for end users, it’s pleasing to the eye and it’s environmentally friendly. We believe that well-designed elements add something to our world,” said Carroll. “We enjoyed the process of creating the Monarch Collection and are proud of the results.”
