I happen to be awash in benches at the moment - many of them are part of my European Linen Collection. They are such useful pieces of furniture and can be used just about anywhere. I was glancing at an article about glamorous bedrooms in Veranda Magazine (one of my favorites) and noted that most of the bedrooms featured end of bed benches - almost as if this was a requirement. link to article and magazine.
I have a pinterest board devoted to ottoman and benches that provides details about the various "end of bed" looks that work with benches - link to pinterest page.
Here are some of my favorite looks - all on my pinterest page.
|This is a very tailored look.|
|If I were redoing my bedroom today, this is what it would look like. I love everything about it.|
|This set of benches is similar to some of mine - love the colorful print!|
|Love the height of the sides on this one.|
|Love this multiple "X" bench!|
|Nicely proportionate to size of bed and room.|
