Yes, Bentley not only makes luxury cars, but high-end home furniture as well. Unfortunately, you’ll have to shell out $14,710 for the ‘Newent Sofa’, $9,040 on the ‘Newent Armchair’, a $4,230 ‘Newent Chair’, and a whopping $11,950 for the ‘Newent Bed’ that you see above, for a combined total of $39,930 before any taxes.

These pieces aren’t just for looks, as each one is made using high-frequency machine presses for the smooth curves, while a flat press machine bonds the veneers to the support. These technologies are used by both Bentley Home and Bentley Motors, which also follow the same process for veneer preservation, storing woods in rooms with a constant temperature to avoid changes in the wood patterns when exposed to the elements, or transitions from dry to damp.
We work very closely with our colleagues at Bentley Home to ensure the furniture we create embodies the exacting standard in design and manufacture we have in our cars. From the language and flow of the surfaces to the detailed execution of the veneering process, the ‘Newent’ range is a great example of what we do best, create luxury products for discerning customers,” said Chris Cooke, Bentley’s Head of Product Design.
