What’s New Wednesday: Small Benches
May 24, 2017 in What's New Wednesday | one comment

Our new small benches offer a chic style statement to a room. They bring in additional seating to a family or living room setting. They can also serve as a stylish addition to the foot of a bed or as an accent for a bathroom.  We currently have two different styles in the shop: a gold Greek key bench for a dressier or more glamorous space and a sleek blackened bronze iron bench for a more minimal, modern pop.

Our Greek key benches present the ancient motif in a stylish, modern context. Greek key designs remain as popular as ever as they translate beautifully into interior accents like fabrics, accessories, and furniture. The Greek key pattern or “meander” is one of the most classic symbols from ancient Greece. The decorative border, made from a continuous line, symbolizes infinity and unity. On our small benches, the Greek key adds a thoughtful detail when paired with the antiqued gold metal finish and light linen upholstered top.

Below is a close up detail of the antiqued gold finish. The dimensions are 21 W x 21 D x 21 H. Each bench sells for $349.99. (Please note that the photos show the benches with a protective/removable plastic cover.)

Here is an example of how we incorporated the benches in a living room. The timeless Greek key benches pair perfectly with a modern, glamorous space. They fill the space, while not making the room look overcrowded.

Next, our sleek metal benches offer clean lines and structure. The blackened iron features bronze undertones and a linen oatmeal upholstered top. It can pair well with a modern farmhouse, modern, industrial or transitional space. The dimensions are 20 Dia. x 19.5 H. Each sells for $299.99. (Please note that the photos show the benches with a protective/removable plastic cover.)

This bench served as the perfect footstool between a pair of chairs in a living room. It can easily be moved around for comfort or to accommodate guests.

Our new benches can work in a variety of spaces. For an even more custom look, you can reupholster the top in any fabric of your choosing. Visit our store to see all the small bench options available!

As a reminder, we will be closed on Monday, May 29th in observance of the Memorial Day holiday. Have a happy and safe holiday weekend!
