Glamorous and very versatile, the X-bench seamlessly merges style and function. A single seat makes for a chic and convenient perch for a vanity or a desk, as it does here. Or push a pair together and use them as a coffee table for holding books and candles or for serving drinks and appetizers during a party.
The beauty of these portable pieces is that they can stand in as an extra seat, discreet storage, or a tablelike surface in any setting or space. A pair of tufted ottomans can be perfect in a dressing room as elegantly disguised storage or in a living area as compact, movable seats that are easy to stow away underneath a console, as shown here.
An Upholstered Bench
Whether it’s used as a long seat, a footrest, or a coffee table, an upholstered bench is sophisticated by default. We especially love how a plush bench can make a space look and feel inviting, sumptuous, and luxurious all at once, as it does in this cozy corner.
Looking to make a few easy summer updates that are stylish and affordable? We’re loving this idea of simply placing a pair of matching garden benches in the entry. Not only do the facing benches provide symmetry and balance, but they also make the space feel welcoming and relaxed.
