One great bench

In this new series we take one great piece of furniture and show how it can be used in three great ways. First up: the bench.

The Sunday Bench was designed by Alana Broadhead of Fancy New Zealand Design Blog, in collaboration with Nigel Cotterill of NDC Design. It is one of the first products from Alana’s new line, The Sunday Kind.
“I love to change up my space every so often for a fresh look,” Alana says.
“So I wanted to create a flexible piece of furniture that could be used in multiple rooms and in multiple ways. The Sunday Bench is awesome as seating at a dining table, at the end of the bed, in the hall or entranceway – even in the bathroom.”
Priced at $380, each Sunday Bench is handmade to order by Nigel at NDC in solid White Ash wood. It is available in blonde (natural) or black from thesundaykind.com.
