March 28th, 2013. Design Ideas, Cubby Bench, Doubled The Function.
At that time I was visiting my friend’s house when I saw that cute cubby bench in her living room. She was really into ethnic patterns. From her dresses, bags, her outfit accessories, and also the furniture at her house were all using the identical pattern. I often go into her house, but I never took a glance at that thing. I thought it was just usual cabinetry, but the more I looked at it, the more I realized that it had more than just cabinet there.
She said actually the main function of it was place to sit. But, to maximize the room below the bench, it was divided into two rooms so that she could place things there. She put a pair of shoes she just wore in a compartment, while in another part she put several magazines and books there. But the most unique thing in that bench is that she found the one with ethnic pattern as the decoration.
In the left and right side, the bench was decorated with wooden sticks that divide the area into nine boxes. The colors were red and orange at interval. In the middle part, there was a bear photo, while in the yellow boxes there were pine shadows. It was totally beautiful and genius at once.
Actually my mother has the similar same function thing. It is just different on the design so that I could not recognize. The one my mother has at her house has five compartments below. It was made from wood that thicker than what my friend has. The next different thing is that there are two cushions on the bench. Therefore I understand that I might sit there too. Well, I have to admit that the bench on my mother house is more traditional in design than my friend’s. But it would be not become such a big deal, since the function of the bench is the most important thing to take care of.Cubby Bench Locker
