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.
In the bathroom. Speaking of an indoor-outdoor bench a water-resistant bench can be put to good use in the bathroom as well. Tuck a small one inside a shower stall to act as a seat or to hold towels and bath products or pull one up to the tub as a place to set down a good book or a glass or wine while you’re having a relaxing soak. When you want to free up room again pull the bench back out to the patio.
Bench as the anti-focal point. Similar to the previous picture two benches on either side of this table guarantee the attention is to what's outside the windows. These benches do a perfect job of "going away" — to be used only when needed.
As a divider. In an open floor plan creating small zones can give a room a more orderly feeling and be a more efficient use of space. Bordering a seating group or TV nook with a bench helps define that zone without creating a visual wall that might shrink the space. Plus a backless bench can be used from any direction allowing it to bridge different seating areas (or become an additional table for snacks or festive supplies).
