For my bench I pretty much knew right off the bat what my selection would be....gold acid wash cowhide (which I have a slight obsession with) paired with a brass base! It is definitely a reflection of my own personal style, as well as a piece I would no doubt use with clients....and hopefully you would love for your home as well! I feel its the perfect neutral while still having a fun edge...you know like when you have that perfect accessory that goes with every outfit!
Once the benches arrived I was so impressed with the quality and craftsmanship...I really wish you could all see and feel them in person! So many times people have accent pieces in their homes that never really get used and are only there for looks. These are so comfortable to sit on that I know they will be used as extra seating often! Not to mention how perfect they are for small space living in that they can be used in so many ways. I have switched them back and forth between the foot of my bed and as an extra space to lay things in front of the bedside tables. They also would be great in a living room, an entryway, or even pulled up to a small dining table.
