Every Home Needs a Bench

It is flexible, versatile, and economical in space—give the bench a place in your home.

Narrow and rectangular, a bench can serve many roles—a place to take off your shoes at the entrance, a chair next to the dining table, or a decorative shelf.

Design-wise, benches can be an aesthetic focal point in a room, and can even serve as a replacement for a picture or sculpture. The bench also has a significant environmental quality. Thanks to its versatility, the bench has a long life, and it can move with us from apartment to apartment.

In a minimalist home, a bench is a must-have piece of furniture. Choose a bench in a neutral color, and in a style that suits a variety of uses. For example, adding it to the dining table when hosting a dinner party, and at the end of the evening, return it to its original location.

In a small house, you can choose a folding bench that can be stored away when not in use. Alternatively, you can choose a bench from durable material and use it as a stand for flower pots on the balcony.
