As a coffee table. A simple bench with no back or sides is versatile enough to transform from a piece of seating to a table and back. Use a bench as your coffee table in a small seating group and you can always move it off to one side as an extra seat for a few guests at a bigger get-together. Use a serving tray or a few inexpensive books to create a perfectly flat surface for resting a coffee cup or cocktail or a decorative box to stash the remotes.
As a small sofa or banquette in a tight space. Add a few pillows and a bench can practically shape-shift into a sofa. Pile up the pillows (in different shades and patterns) to cozy up a low-back bench or simply push a bench against a wall to hold the pillows and voilà you’ve got a plush seat solution. Create a breakfast nook banquette a pit stop outside the bedroom a dreamy window seat. With a bench in your decor arsenal you’ve got so many options you might just need to take a seat and think about them all.
When choosing a garden bench remember that certain woods do not withstand the outside elements well. You will do well choosing cedar teak cypress and mahogany for instance. Another option although some people believe it takes away from the natural look is a wrought iron garden bench or a plastic garden bench. Finally concrete marble stone and granite are also beautiful and durable but unfortunately unless they have a cushion they are not very comfortable. When buying or building a wood garden bench remember the cardinal rule - the fewer screws and bolts the better the finished bench will look.
Who doesn't love a classic stripe? I would have a hard time passing this little lady up. Woven entirely by hand the cover of this bench is crafted to look like antique Turkish rugs.
