When it comes to statement-making pieces of furniture—the ones that are both useful and transformative—we tend to focus on big ticket items like a sofa, bed or bookcase. But there's actually a smaller, supporting item that's deceptively impressive. The humble bench is a multipurpose piece that can solve many design challenges. It's versatile enough to fit into tight entryways, durable enough to sub-in for kitchen seating and offers streamlined style as a coffee table replacement. It's an accent piece, but it's also practical. The slim silhouette makes it ideal for tight spaces. And because it works in so many different areas, this is a piece you can repurpose year after year in different homes. Slide boxes or a trunk underneath for extra storage, or add a throw and a stack of books on top for cozy vibes. Crafted from wood, leather or metal, they're as sculptural as they are practical. To further make our case, we've rounded up ten stylish options in a range of prices.
