The must-have footnote in a room, a bench is an ideal way to impart character into small spaces that might otherwise go unadorned. Use one to cap the foot of a bed or add a leisurely touch to an entry. For the boldest of statements, opt for sculptural pieces that can double as gallery works. Fancy yourself a touch more reserved? Divulge in simple frames that employ masterful finishes like burls, bronzes, and lacquers.
