What are the different types of benches for your home?
Classically welcoming and endlessly versatile, a well-placed bench can lend seating, storage and style to your space. Try a clean-lined wooden bench as an entryway rest stop or in lieu of chairs at your dining table for a family-style feel. A storage bench or hall tree with open shelving or drawers is another excellent entryway option, perfect for keeping shoes, jackets and bags organized and handy. Opt for maximum comfort with an upholstered bench, an elegant accent along the living room wall or at the foot of the bed. Or amp up the luxury with a plush daybed or chaise, richly upholstered and expertly adorned with pillows for extra-chic extra seating.
Can you sit on a storage ottoman?
Harder working than your average stool and more inviting than baskets or shelving, a storage ottoman or storage bench is the perfect combination of comfortable seating and clever storage. Fill them with blankets, toys, magazines, games and more, then simply replace the top to sit pretty (and comfy). For even more living room versatility, try a storage ottoman that lends length to your couch like the one in our Emmett sectional collection.
How do I find a bench that matches my home?
Benches are a beautiful blend of form and function. When looking for the right one, consider function first. Where will your bench live? Does it need to be comfortable for long periods of sitting, or is it more of a decorative accent? Are you hoping for a bench that adds storage to the entryway or living room? Once you've figured out what features it needs to have, you'll be ready to find the perfect bench to suit your personal style, whether it's contemporary or vintage-inspired, mid-century modern or rustic. If you need a little inspiration, start with our guide to shopping by style.
What is the difference between a bench and an ottoman?
If you're looking for flexible extra seating, a comfy footrest or an upholstered piece you can style as a coffee table, an ottoman is probably your best bet. For entryway storage, foot-of-bed lounging or larger living room seating, you'll likely want to go bench. But remember, there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to furniture picking and placement - mix and match a benches and ottomans, group ottomans together for a larger seating arrangement, try a bench as a coffee table - the possibilities are endless (and totally up to you).
