I've had benches on my mind ALL week. I love a good bench and the bench hunt sparked when a friend asked for an opinion for an entry way type area she has. We went furniture shopping at a few local handmade furniture shops and ended up with something that wasn't a bench at all. But, in the process I came across a church pew bench and my dream of owning one basically started yelling at me again!

So, I thought I'd do a little roundup of some great benches I've seen lately. It's a neutral overload this time!

Anthropologie has an amazing selection of these wingback benches. Velvet, linen, and colors galore! I fell in love with them all.

Church pews are a little harder to come across online. Though, I'm keeping my eyes peeled local and web-wide for the perfect one!

This pillow top bench comes in a fun pattern and looks plush!

Of course, Joanna Gaines would have the perfect farmhouse style bench.

And, because your patio space needs a good bench too! This outdoor one is affordable and fun!
