Perfectly Paired: Bedroom Benches


There is something so pleasing about a pair of benches at the foot of the bed! It's one bedroom layout that is just lovely and practical (and we all know that a match of form and function is a great  and often rare thing!) Benches or stools help visually anchor the bed and I so prefer them to a foot board - which I always end up kicking in the night. Plus, as a girl obsessed with lots of decorative bed pillows, the benches offer a perfect place to stack them at night or pile up discarded clothes or books! I  have collected a little gallery of my favorite perfectly paired benches . . .

The room is so 'Secret Garden' to me  - but updated! Fantastic wallpaper and brushed nickel canopy bed {Domino via The Crafty Cameleon}

I love how feminine yet light this space is! and these great cream painted antique benches with a mod geometric fabric are perfect! {via House Beautiful, designer not noted}
