Forget the ottoman – have you noticed all the cute x-benches? I suppose they are technically stools.
What a great example of something that is on-trend, but not necessarily trendy. X-benches are classic, smart, and functional. Great for extra seating or for putting your feet up.
A pair of x-benches look fabulous at the end of a bed.
A pair in front of a sofa makes a standard coffee table seem so passe! Tuck a couple under an entry or console table – extra seating you can pull out in a pinch.
Where can you find these little lovelies? Try Ballard Design, Wisteria, Macy’s, HomeGoods, Target.
I’m smitten, I tell you. I recently redesigned a dining room for a client using 3 x-benches on one side of the table, rather than standard chairs or a long bench. The combo looks fabulous! I found these here in Nashville at Merridian on 8th Avenue, one of my favorite places for scoring great furniture.
By the way, Merridian has a huge sale going on through April 17th. You might want to go check them out – tell them The Decorologist sent you!
