X Bench Planning

Before I flip the switch to holiday madness wanted to squeeze in one more recent house project. It turned out great and was WAY affordable. I hope you will enjoy! It’s a two part-er…. 🙂

I have loved X Benches forever and ever. Not sure what it is – partly how neat and tidy a pairing looks at the foot of a bed or as a substitute coffee table.  And because they come in millions of styles.  Or maybe I love that because they are tiny and mobile you have free reign to make them into punchy little pieces with a bold color or a crazy print that you might not have the guts to do on a big chair.  I would never run out of places to put them!

Time to get you excited, too.  Have collaged my little heart out below.

Tory Burch apparently even loves them in her shops (left column hot pink and purple)
And under a console table just gets me every time.

Now the bad news….I see them on blogs, in catalogs, and in magazines, and yet it seems sort of hard to actually find them to buy.  Scratch that, have found where one can buy them but they are pricey!!  Case in point:
Jonathan Adler – $595.00
Serena & Lily – $650.00 – $850.00 (Gulp! Remember they look best as a pair!)
Ballard Designs – $179.00 – $369.00 (one of the best priced I have found, depending on fabric you pick.)

If you are game I think I’ve found a work around!
Next posting. Can’t wait! XOXO
