I’ve been searching for modern benches for a client’s entryway, and I love what’s out there right now! And thanks to etsy, a lot of it is handmade and unique. And many pieces represent a story, about a craftsman or an artist or a small business, or maybe even a bit of history. Essentially, these are all functional pieces of art, not just furniture. I thought I might share some of my favorites here.
The Slip Square bench, found on etsy.com, is by David Hentzel of Special Project Division in Seattle
This Folded Plane bench is by the same artist. I love the custom aluminum Kerf plates at the corners.
This simple bench from Mash Studios is constructed of English Walnut
This bench is by Adam Hogsett of Richmond, VA. The wood is reclaimed railroad ties from the Richmond area.
