Bedroom Furniture | Benches - The Furniture Authority
Just an extra seat... 

The way people use their bedroom has changed. Although the bed may still be the salient feature in every bedroom, other pieces of furniture have been vying for more attention, including armoires, nightstands, television stands, and chairs. No other piece of furniture, however, offers the style and versatility that is offered by the bedroom bench.

Much of the bedroom bench's popularity stems from its sheer versatility. A bedroom bench may be used for its intended purpose - as a chair - while dressing or reading or as extra-seating while guests are in the bedroom. Additionally, it can be used to lay out clothing for the next day or while arranging clothes in one's closet. It can be used as a footstool to put one's feet up after a busy day, or even as a step stool, as its light weight makes it easy to move around the room should one require access to the hard-to-reach upper portions of large armoires and cabinets. Extra blankets for those particularly chilly nights seem right at home on top of the bedroom bench. The bench can be placed against the footboard of a bed to provide extra coverage, ideal for masking large unused bedroom floor space. However, a bedroom bench is no longer confined to the foot of the bed. You can move it around depending on the purpose it serves. A bedroom bench can be put in spaces that need compact yet luxurious seating.

The bedroom bench is not just a functional piece of furniture anymore! Bedroom benches offer a certain grace and elegance to bedrooms. They are offered in a variety of styles, sure to fit any decor - contemporary, classic, traditional, or transitional. Additionally, the benches come in all sorts of designs. The Furniture Authority, a recognized leader in the US for top quality bedroom furniture and accessories, has a broad selection of benches - wrought iron benches, storage benches, wooden benches, leather benches - to provide elegant choices. We offer solid kiln dried wood with no lamination, finger, or butt joints. Whether you prefer a rich upholstered bedroom bench or the more practical, but just as beautiful, storage bench, you can truly customize your space and add a special touch without spending a lot of money.

An upholstered bedroom bench can be used to add a romantic or old-world feel to your intimate space. It can also be covered with rich, colorful fabrics chosen from a large tapestry of colors and designs to match your existing bedroom decor. If you want something a little more personal or unique, simply cover your upholstered bedroom bench with your own needlepoint work or family heirloom fabrics.

A storage bedroom bench can be the perfect solution for non-existing or small and cramped closets. It is ideal for storing off-season bed linens and clothes or personal treasures and family keepsakes.

The Furniture Authority has directly partnered with over 50 leading brand names in furniture manufacturing to offer the best in quality and price.
