A bench like this will serve a multitude of purposes in the home. It can hold a tray of food or drinks, or several pairs of feet. It can offer additional seating for one or event two guests and it can hold your book or magazine until you find a few moments to put your own feet up. Aside from its use, you can choose the wood finish and select from hundreds of upholstery choices. Since blind tufting is standard with this design, it is not recommended that you select a pattern that requires matching.
