Norrell Bench

July 17, 2008

I seem to have a thing with benches, which is odd seeing how I don’t even own one. The most recent to catch my eye is the Norrell Bench from Pottery Barn.

Ship Wood Bench

July 3, 2008

This bench at VivaTerra, is “hand-wrought from a no-longer sailing vessel. With a patina that radiates softly like thick layers of satin, while its aged density and strength give it a nobility all its own.”

Hello Stranger

June 27, 2008

Hello Stranger’s concave form encourages sociability but leaves open the option to sit apart. Used in multiples, Hello Stranger can be used to create interesting layouts that encourage different forms of interaction. Hello Stranger consists of a tough stainless steel frame together with a seat insert available in a variety of materials, from hardwoods to metals and plastics.

I don’t think this necessarily looks the most comfortable, but I like look and the fact that it folds.

Reminiscent of a steamer deck chair, our folding barrel stave chair is made from salvaged 70-gallon oak wine barrels. When folded, the slats nest alongside one another, making the chair as flat as a comma. Individually numbered with the name of the winery branded under the seat. For those who don’t like to be alone, there’s also a bench variety.

Nautic Folding Seat

June 3, 2008

I have an entry where you’d like something to sit down on to take off your shoes and what not but it’s not wide enough to put anything. I recently saw this Nautic Folding Seat and thought it would be perfect.

I just love this Suture Bench with storage by Produce Design…. with oxidized ash and carbon steel handles and sutures. 

They also make a really cool pot and pan rack.

A reclaimed beam is milled for a magnetic knife holder and fins that hang pots below. Trays in the top accommodate the knife magnet, lid storage, and spice storage and display.

Nightstand

May 13, 2008

I don’t know anything about it (perhaps one of you will), but I really like how they’ve used this stand/bench as a nightstand.

This bench is also a coffee table, a storage unit, and a shelf. Solid pine frame houses three drawers to conveniently store anything from gloves and scarves to DVDs, plus a roomy and decorative shelf to store smaller items within easy reach. Moveable bent tray slides horizontally or can be removed completely.

Saw a picture of this bench from Ikea that I really wish I had a place in my yard for…

Magazine Rack Bench

April 1, 2008

I think I mentioned before that I really like objects that have a dual function, which is why I like the Magazine Rack Bench. I especially like the grove detail at the back of the seat to store the book your currently reading.

Chaise & Tabouret

March 24, 2008

This chair has an auxiliary stool that comes out of bottom of the chair. The upper part of the stool slides without effort into a groove under the chair, with a small stop keeping the two seats together.

Nice Bench

March 13, 2008

I have a thing for benches that can be used for seating and/or  tables, probably because I lack seating in my house and I like the dual use. I like this one especially because of the hollow middle where I could hide things out of sight.

BenchToilet

Continuing with things that aren’t usually very awe inspiring… check out this toilet. The bench toilet incorporates a sliding exotic wood panel concealing the fixture and doubling as a powder room bench.
