This kind of wooden bench is designed to be very practical to use, not only for seating design but also for magazine storage. Yes, it has some space in the back rest of the bench that fortified with single line rail to support some magazines on it. The chair is designed in old style bench, it will suitable to make traditional style room. I think this bench is perfect for indoor only. Although it can be place at outdoor and still durable enough, but how about the magazine that we put in this bench? The newspaper or magazine will not stand against bad weather.
Here are some pictures of this multifunctional bench, it will nice to have this seat at home. We can get a chair while reserving other place for other furniture, because we not need additional end table just to store our daily reading magazine or books. The bench is designed by Swedish design students, Emma Nilsson, Johanna Westin and Lisa Frode. If you need to contact them, you can visit the website at here, or see the bench at the Stockholm furniture fair in the next February 2011.
