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.
At the end of a bed. A sleek bench at the end of the bed gives you a place to prop a leg while tying a shoe or pulling on tights. It also acts as a beautiful visual anchor. Ideally the top of the bench should be a few inches below the finished top of the bedding (once sheets and duvets are factored in) for a pleasing play of heights. Accent it with a few books and baubles leave an aged wood one unadorned or dress it only in an interesting material like this subtle faux snakeskin.
