Pull up a bench and stay awhile…

You will have several to choose from…


How about this vintage Korean bench in the front foyer, the perfect perch to watch the world go by…


Or this gorgeous antique Chinese theater bench in the living room…a stylish way to watch TV…


This 1800 era Monk bench is pretty and practical…that was my justification for purchasing it. My hero says the benches are just an excuse to buy more pillows and throws…he may not be completely wrong…


Of couse nothing beats a cozy Sunday afternoon on a bench with a good book…wearing green beads.

  1. You do have some very pretty benches. And if they happen to be a place for pretty throws and pillows and princesses with green beads, all the better!


  2. Wonderful benches, Amy! I love a place for cushions and throws. {like the bed} My hubby, not so much. I have a bench at the foot of the bed too. 🙂 Thanks for sharing.



    1. My husband is pretty good with my decorating whims. He is always willing to drag home some strange things but is very impressed with what you can do with “junk”


  3. Love the benches. The beautiful crocheted afghan on Bench 1…did you make it? Is there a pattern available for it.
