It’s chilly outside…no…it’s just plain COLD. Makes you want to curl up next to the fireplace, doesn’t it? For these cozy evenings next to the crackling flames, you need the perfect bench to pull up. A full chair is often too removed from the open air heat, and a throw pillow on the floor just isn’t that comfortable….a bench is the perfect solution! It’s mobile, supportive, backless and therefore allows a view of the fire, and with any luck it’s beautiful. Here are four of my top picks for fireside benches. Many are available in custom upholstery (Ballard has several in-house options!) and all are versatile, interesting neutrals. Time to get comfy, and enjoy the benches!
Which is your favorite?
