  • Learn More About Benches & Trunks

    Benches are long, low seats that sometimes offer storage options, while trunks are larger storage containers that double as home decor. Storage trunks and benches work for indoor and outdoor settings, supplying a host of uses, like adding another seat when guests arrive or keeping spare throw blankets neatly stowed away.

    Consider some of these common places to use trunks and benches in your home:

    • Entryway: A low bench in the entryway gives you a place to sit comfortably while you put on your shoes or drop your bag when you get home. Store shoes underneath for a tidy and organized front entrance or mudroom.
    • Living room: Use a vintage storage trunk as a coffee table or a living room storage bench behind the couch to display a collection of favorite books. An upholstered bench in the living room offers another seat or a place to prop up your feet.
    • Hallway: Do you have a long hallway space you’re not quite sure how to fill? Hang a piece of wall art or a mirror above a storage bench for a dash of visual interest.
    • Dining room: In smaller homes, upholstered benches are true space savers, especially when you need dining room seating. If you choose a bench with storage, keep your table linens inside for easy decor switches when the seasons change.
    • Bedroom: Put a footlocker storage trunk at the end of your bed as a hiding spot for extra blankets and pillows or stacks of sweaters.
    • Porch or sunroom: Slide a bench or a trunk against a window for a cozy spot to enjoy a morning beverage and take in the views.
    • Outside: Backyard hangouts benefit from outdoor seating that doubles as storage—use an outdoor storage trunk to hold your patio cushions when it’s going to rain or to house the bocce ball set when everyone’s itching for a game at the cookout.

    Turn your home decor dreams into a reality and pick from some popular storage trunk and bench styles:

    • Mid-century modern: A style popularized during American economic growth in the ‘40s and ‘50s, mid-century benches showcase simple lines and materials without embellishment.
    • Wooden: Classic, carved, or hewn, wooden benches and trunks range from stunning vintage pieces to expertly hand-carved accents.
    • Minimalist: Austere and aesthetic, minimalist benches and trunks accentuate a room’s look without overwhelming the eyes.
    • Woven: Wicker storage trunks provide unique visual textures. Browse a selection of hand-woven benches and trunks from talented artisans on Etsy to discover a piece that makes your space pop.
