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.
Make a statement with a big swoop. Have a steep hillside that's impossible to plant? Use it to your advantage by building in a unique curved bench.
As a sofa table. That same bench that’s on hand to add dining seating or to hold party spillover can double as a slim sofa table during the day holding books decorative planters and small storage boxes. It gives an open floor plan a visual anchor for the seating and functional but beautiful “shelf” space.
Channel elements of your dream getaway. Love the Italian Riviera? A built-in stone seat with an architectural backrest and striped cushions plus café chairs and a big umbrella nearby will bring the look home. Even if you can’t jet off to Italy you can enjoy a pretty fabulous staycation in your own yard.
