You’ll love the extended lines of this elegant bench, named for ballerina Alicia Markova. I love her story: doctors told her to try dancing to strengthen her weak limbs – and she became an international star. Sometimes adversity can be a blessing, encouraging us to try a new path, discover new talents. Here the hand-selected Pippy Oak grain plays with the light, and the tapered solid wood legs provide sturdy yet stylish support.
This English ballerina, choreographer and teacher was a founder dancer of the Rambert Dance Company and The Royal Ballet and co-founder and director of the English National Ballet. Her first role was at age 10, in a panto, and she fell in love with the stage. She joined the Ballets Russe in Monte Carlo at age 14 and later excelled in Giselle and Swan Lake.
