This beautifully crafted bench serves many purposes in my house. Extra seating for guests, side table for food during big dinners. And I enjoy looking at it all the time.
We purchased the Davis Bench to put in our mudroom. It is a simple, but lovely piece of furniture. Note the cute detail in the way the legs are joined with the top of the bench. It manages to be completely lovely and functional at the same time - perfect size too.
