The Hekman Asher Benjamin Collection

Back in April we reported that Hekman had teamed up with Peter and Meg Strattner, creators of the Crate and Barrel look, in a new collection of casegoods, the Asher Benjamin collection.
The clean-lined design for Hekman features American Cherry veneers with walnut accents and a natural cherry finish.

“I think what’s happening is we’re slowly seeing a transition to another generation of potential customers. It’s a customer who is more interested in an urban lifestyle within their home than an actual urban geographic location. It’s cleaner lines, cleaner finishes and less encumbered.”
We now have pictures of the designs on the Hekman website.

The table at the top is:

* Select solids, flat cut cherry veneer, and walnut bead
* Three 18" leaves
* Extends to 102" with all three leaves
* Asher Benjamin finish on select hardwood solids and veneers


* Height: 29" (74 cm)
* Diameter: 48" (122 cm)

The finish is called Asher Benjamin:
