Outdoors. Why invest in purely outdoor-only seating when a multifunctional bench can work for you all year round? A foyer bench or sofa table for example can be slid outside in the warm weather and act as additional outdoor seating in a size that suits anything from a grand veranda to a compact condo balcony. Choose a bench in a pale wood to work anywhere or try a fun plastic pop of color for a summery attitude all year.
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.
Family gathering spot. It is clear that this home is meant for a large family and the main gathering spot is this table near the fireplace and wall of windows. Benches in this setting allow for a certain intimacy that chairs are otherwise unable to provide. I envision a large family gathered around the dinner table sharing stories of years past.
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.
