Indoor bench seats are on the up and up. I mean, think about it; 10 years ago there were nowhere near as many dominating homes. You may have seen a bench seat used at the end of the bed or in a dining room, but that’s about it.
Now, you can use them just about anywhere in the home, and the entryway is one of my fave spots to pop one. It makes for a great little shoes-on station, and you can easily decorate around them.
The option above from Globewest (you can shop it further down) is a perfect example. Leave your fave shoes underneath the bench, pop a book on top, and add in a few decorative hooks above for jackets and scarves. Seriously; I want and need one in my life.
If you’re as hungry for a bench in your home as I am, today’s post has you covered. I’m lifting the lid on 13 fabulous indoor bench seats from some of your fave brands. And I’m also throwing in some designer options from makers you may not have heard of yet. Because, truly, there’s nothing better than discovering a local designer whose products make your heart skip a beat.
So let’s get into drooling over some phenomenal indoor bench seats!
Indoor Bench Seats for the Bedroom
My, my, my. Indoor bench seats for the bedroom have come a long way. Sure, there are loads of options that feature a clean, slimline design. But I love the idea of a bench seat with built-in storage.
And as you can see, it also holds all your fave magazines, so flipping through a mag on the weekend – from bed – is going to become a whole lot easier (and stylish). It also has built-in wine bottle storage as well, so don’t think this is a bench seat strictly for the bedroom. It could go behind a sofa (like in the image below) or you could use it as a coffee table.
Indoor Bench Seats for the Living Room
So many living rooms, like mine, force you to have a layout where the sofa back is exposed to the room. Often the space can feel a little unresolved. The sofa might not be high enough to push a hall table up against it, but an indoor bench seat is a whole other story.
I love the concept of putting a bench along the back of your sofa. It covers what might be a sofa back that’s less than sexy, and it instantly gives you additional seating. If you choose a lightweight option, you can easily move it around. And decorating it with cushions and throws is a winning strategy that’ll add more warmth to the room.
