Benches have always fascinated me. I grew up in Mangalore where benches (rather like the one above) are an integral part of the front porch decor. Gossip, selecting wares from door-to-door salesmen, afternoon siestas and informal entertaining, studying, reading, you name it...it's all done on the bench in most houses back home!
I am eying a beautiful Mango wood bench from Fabindia. I think it would look perfect in my home, and I have the cushions all figured out too. Well, until that happens, have a look at these flickr bench finds...
Send me your bench pics. I will be doing another post on benches soon, and I would love to feature them. Thanks to the flickr members who shared their pics for this one!
