Lately I have been searching for stools and benches for several clients and realized that many people have never even considered them when designing their bedrooms.

1.  If you have room, a bench at the end of the bed is very useful and also looks great.  These acrylic legs add glamour.

2.  Stools at the ends of single beds provide a place for putting on shoes and socks and take up less visual space than chairs.

3.  Sometimes a pair of stools works better at the end of a bed.

5.  Here is a Classic long bench at the end of the bed.  It’s fit for a King or Queen if that is your style.
