The orange and red color palette used in this dining room is great for promoting appetite and lively dinner conversation. A streamlined Italian wood bench paired with red upholstered chairs allows for space-efficient seating in the compact room. For larger dinner parties, the dining table flips and expands out to double the size.
Since the dining area sits just off the open kitchen, the designers used a large gray-and-white area rug to complement the marble island and make the two spaces look even more cohesive. Meanwhile, two brown leather chairs and a chic wooden bench provide stylish seating around the dining table.
With what's called a "butterfly" roof, this midcentury modern home is a vision of indoor/outdoor living. Here, the expansive porch boasts built-in benches, dining table and chairs, and a gorgeous collection of native flowers, plants, trees and succulents.
This back yard looks like a small, modern museum garden. The tidy deck features comfortable seating around a unique art piece incorporating wood and painting. The greens and blues of nature complement the white of the structure -- and vice versa.
A perfectly composed bedroom is a thing of beauty -- and this one's no exception. The symmetry of the space -- including the matching bedside tables and metal lamps -- is pleasing on the eye, creating a serene spot to rest and recharge.
While patrons wait for their nails to dry, then can enjoy the views outside the Paintbar salon. A glass wall lets in plenty of natural light into the space and allows patrons to see outside the salon. A modern bench provides a place to dry wet nails, while modern stools give patrons placed to sit.
In the dining room, the homeowners needed a space that could accommodate their many friends, so designers installed a bench seat that could do just that. The wraparound bench is upholstered in comfortable materials and accented with colorful pillows, while modern chairs provide additional seating. The word art on the wall is perfect for a kitchen, creating a double meaning, while the modern light fixture finishes off the space.
The symmetry in this living room brings a sense of visual order and comfort to an elegant space. Deep, rich gray walls create a dramatic backdrop for neutral and white chairs, benches and area rug. Large windows bathe the room in light which can be dampened when desired with the darker window treatments.
Multicolor striped rugs bring a fun bohemian influence to this loft sitting space. Natural light from the windows keep the space bright and calm. Low furniture makes the room look spacious and open. A neutral backless bench and large houseplants fill the space.
