If you’ve got the outdoor space, you should definitely consider adding an outdoor bench to your patio furniture collection. Why? Because no other piece of furniture beckons you to come and sit, relax and enjoy a bit of nature like a garden bench does. Maybe it’s because we grew up sitting on benches at parks or at Grandma’s house, I don’t know for sure. All I know is that a garden bench adds charm and functional seating to any outdoor space.
My pick of this season is the Garden Leaves Park Bench, which features a beautiful cast iron leaf design on its back. Why? Read on…
Classic Look – This elegant bench has a classic look in its design, but has no distressed or antiqued elements. Basically, it is fresh and new but still upholds traditional style elements of those old fashioned garden benches we so adore. The mixture of iron and hardwoods ensures its stability, and also gives it a subtle modern flair.
Open Form – I love that this bench is not too bulky or imposing. The open back and sides allow your greenery to show through while still providing comfort. This bench looks great anywhere you put it, from the back patio to out in the garden, and it even works on the front porch as a place from which to greet neighborhood friends as they pass by on an evening stroll.
Price Point – Let’s face it, most of us have had to tighten the purse strings, as they say, over the past few years. With a great price, you still get a sturdy reliable bench that is outdoor and weather ready.
Comfort – The garden leaves bench pays close attention to your comfort level as well, with a sloped seat and back so that you don’t feel as though you are about to be ejected from the seat!
