Benches! Defining Space in Floor Plans...

Modern residential designs make use of open floor plans in the main living areas, especially in the urban setting where space is often times limited.

Without walls, furniture styles and arrangements need to be carefully planned to help break up and define these spaces. Benches successfully bridge the gap between areas by allowing seating on either side, yet keep a low profile to help nurture the benefits of an open space plan. Following are two examples of beautiful upholstered wood benches (if we do say so ourselves) taken from our own custom furniture line:
