Welcome friends with a curved border. Sharp modern lines look crisp but they are not for everyone. If you crave a softer look try introducing a round shape to your patio with a gently curved bench made from stone or wood.
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.
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.
Integrate steps and seats for a smooth look. If you are working on a major patio remodel take into account the steps pathways and other elements during the planning process. Repeating materials like the wood and concrete shown here creates a cohesive look.
