Tandem Bench

Maybe I’m crazy for wanting one of these tandem benches, but they are so cool!

Used in waiting rooms, airports and bowling alleys, these benches were a dime a dozen back in the day.  Now, they can make for an awesome statement piece in your home.

$365.  Blue and taupe naugahyde over fiberglass shells.

Our laundry room off the garage has become our catch-all place for, well everything.  It’s where we keep about 10 pairs of shoes, three jackets apiece, diaper bags, purses, random items needing a home (like our old kitchen table), and of course, heaps and heaps of laundry.

I’d like to think that if we put a little effort into making it more functional, it might end up staying a little tidier.  I’d love to hang some sleek coat hooks on the back wall.  There’s a coat closet right when we walk in, but somehow coats don’t end up in there.

And a place to sit and put on shoes and coats would be amazing.  Right now I sit Logan on the dryer while I try to wrestle him into his outerwear.  Not exactly ideal.

$295.  Love the color! I would buy this in a heartbeat if it would fit in our laundry room! Unfortunately it’s about 3′ too long. :(

$249.  I’m a sucker for those fiberglass arm chairs.

$399.  Simple and sweet.  A much better fit for our space.  The white seats aren’t as playful as some of the other options, but you can always add color elsewhere.

$2,250.  But so kooshy and I love the little table! Someone go buy this, please!

$225.  This one is marked down because it’s missing the center seat.

But… if you added a little shelf there like one of the those benches pictured above?  Perfection!
