Weather the elements with stone seating. A stacked stone bench and table have a rustic elegance that would be at home anywhere from New England to California and beyond. In the summer it can play host to gatherings plumped up with colorful cushions. In the winter it adds organic beauty to the landscape.
In the foyer. Even in a large home the foyer or entry tends to be a relatively small area but so often we need a quick seat to slip off a boot wait for a slowpoke loved one or set down a package. A bench with a slim profile can be easily tucked against a wall leaving room to slip footwear below and hang jackets or leashes above so no more space is eaten up than necessary. Make sure to use a hardy material such as a rugged leather or microsuede so the occasional wet umbrella won’t spoil the look.
In the bathroom. Speaking of an indoor-outdoor bench a water-resistant bench can be put to good use in the bathroom as well. Tuck a small one inside a shower stall to act as a seat or to hold towels and bath products or pull one up to the tub as a place to set down a good book or a glass or wine while you’re having a relaxing soak. When you want to free up room again pull the bench back out to the patio.
Use one long bench for multiple seating areas. Make the most of your space by using a built-in bench long enough to span several seating areas. Vary the height of your bench so you can position an outdoor dining table at one end and make a lounge area at the other end.
