Look for Less: X Benches

Hi Sophisticates! It's Marche' from #eyecandy again for another Look For Less column! I can hardly believe it's already April. I love warm weather and there is no better place to enjoy warm weather than at the beach! This gorgeous bedroom (pictured above) is perfect for a beach bungalow. The simple color palette and patterns make this room perfect for coastal living.

The x benches really add the finishing touch to this room. Lately, I have been searching for x benches for my apartment. They are small yet pack a big punch, whether at the end of your bed or in your living room as a substitute for a coffee table.

Ballard Designs' X-Bench offers an identical version of the all-white benches pictured above. This chic bench not only has an upholstered cushion, but it also has upholstered legs. With over 140 fabric options, you will be able to pick the perfect look for your home!

If you are not a fan of the all-fabric option, Crate & Barrel's X-Base Bench is a great option. I love the contrast of the dark wood base paired with the upholstered cushion. Target offers a similar version to Crate & Barrel for a fraction of the cost. Their X-Leg Square Bench is less than $100! With it's leather cushion, it is much easier to keep clean.

With these x-benches, you are sure to add some extra seating and interest to your space!
