Design Hack: Bench Bookshelf

Double-duty furniture is a must-have in small spaces and family homes, and this combined bench and bookshelf in senior editor Sally Armstrong’s basement is a particularly clever solution. Shelves built under the seat not only keep clutter at bay, but also add visual interest, putting a collection of multicolored spines on display. To get a similar look to this custom piece, look for a bench with open storage and stock it with your favorite titles.

Nice! I very much like the look and function. I’m surprised to see so many patterns grouped together but that seems to be the trend lately.
