They Call Me the Bench Wench

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…

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.

Ooh I really like the one with the wool cozy on it. It looks so comfortable and inviting! I wonder if it’d be hard to make!


I’ve never really thought about benches. I like!


I agree with you, Gianna. There are tons of options out there!


I like the sweet low one in the bedroom. It looks like a comfy place to sit with legs stretched out and chat. I simply love all the crazy things people can do with benches.


Yeah, that’s a fun one, Sarah. Good choice.


Loving the DIY wood plank version! Gorgeous! x
