Beautiful Benches

I love a bench at the end of a bed, though I am discovering they work in any space. Mixed with chairs at a dining table, in a hallway or entry, they can be both practical and pretty. Covered in a vibrant ikat fabric or handcrafted from timber they are versatile in their style too. Have a look at these and think about ways that you could work them into one of your spaces.

  1. wowser..these are gorgeous examples...I love this look! I have a beautiful pair of bench seats made from Norfolk pine that hubby made for our dining table..that are so solid, earthy and I absolutely adore them! If we end up getting dining chairs instead I will most certainly be using them like you have picture above..in the entrance way..where you can plonk your bag etc on your way in ; )

  2. Loving the whole hallway/coat rack situation. We're going to have a massively wide hallway once our renos are done so I'm thinking that could be a great way to tidy up what will inevitably become a 'dumping ground'.

    PS I'm having a giveaway over at my blog! http://dearlittlehouse.blogspot.com/2011/05/100th-post-celebratory-giveaway.html?showComment=1306553572964

  7. Benches are definitely versatile! I was thinking about getting a leather woven bench for my entryway for a while, too!
