Benches; from inexpensive to well, expensive

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Benches are one of the pieces of furniture I need the most. They kinda go anywhere. At the foot of a bed, in a hallway, entrance, under an art wall, in a living room to counter act so much taller furniture, at a dining table … you get it. So here’s my roundup of benches, starting with the cheapies.

These three are pretty great for how inexpensive they are:

1. Bamboo Folding Bench, $59.99  2. Threshold Woven Accent Bench, $99.99  3. Velvet End of Bed Bench, $129.99

And if you want to spend a bit more … That orange one is adorable and if I was traditional, I’d be all over that skirted one that has storage:

benches-150-191

1. Antiqua Benches, $149  2. Retro Orange Wool Bench, $148.49  3. Skirted Storage Bench, $191  4. Andalucia Large Dark Brown Leather Bench, $172.99

My friend Scott owns #3 below and it’s strangely great for the price:

1. Dylan Bench, $249  2. Alondra Storage Bench, $207  3. Martha Stewart Living Lombard Long Bench, $239  4. Rainbow Weave Bench, $229

I would officially own all of these, well the ruffled one I’d have in my french cottage, but probably not my current house:   benches-329-400

1. John Vogel Bench, $499  2. Wrap Bench, $399  3. Modern Bench in Knoll Upholstery, $400  4. Betsy Ruffled Skirt Bench, $329 – $519

For those of you who kinda want to splurge more (take note, that navy blue copper bench comes in other bright colors — it’s amazing):

benches-519-599

1. Kilim Bench – Blue Stripe, $599  2. Cooper Aluminum Bench, $519  3. Darwin Dining Bench, $549  4. Mueller Bench, $575

benches-845-899

1. Moller Model 63A Bench, $800  2. The Clarke Bench, $895  3. Morris Bench, $899

And in case you own your own plane and found an extra $1200 underneath the cushion, here are some splurges for you:

benches-1298-4320

1. Flying Point Bench, $2,400  2. Illusion Bench, $1,698  3. Florence Knoll Bench, $4,320  4. Kilim Rose Bench, $1,298

Thank you very much, Alexis, for helping me with the research and creating the boards. Y’all can check out Alexis’ lovely blog HERE.
