Love it or hate it. Fiddle leaf fig trees are still the best game in town, when it comes to cool plants. They look good in every room I have ever seen them in. Seriously. Every room.

So, I think they deserve their own Interior Obsessions post. Don’t you? Here are 7 ways that fiddle leaf figs still have my heart…

Nelson Bench

Okay. Okay. No one has ever actually called me a bench wench. But hey, it makes for a snappy title. And envisioning what an actual bench wench might be like, brings a smile to my face.

Can you picture it? She (or he) attempts to hoard full-size benches under her (or his) coat, whenever one tickles her (or his) fancy. Now, that’s dedication!

And while I’m not so into these four-legged pieces of furniture that I’d attempt hoarding one, coat-style, I’m still definitely a fan… There won’t be a wall in my next house dedicated to benches. That’s just for chairs. Remember? But I love them enough to dedicate a whole post to it. Which counts for something, in my book.

So here’s a little bench inspiration for this week’s Interior Obsessions post…

Amazing Bench

8. Pretty sure that this bench is what my dreams are made of! It may be considered a lounge, but for our purposes, it’s a bench. A very awesome bench.

Said in my best RuPaul voice.

It’s been a while since I rounded up workspaces and I feel like I need a little inspiration in that department today. So instead of making this post super wordy, let’s just jump right in.

Here are a handful of spaces I’m loving right now…
