Benches + Ottomans + Stools

Keep your sleeping palace floor clear of your clothes with a fashionable bedroom bench to store that pair of jeans that is not quite ready for the laundry basket. Placing a bench from west elm at the foot of your bed gives you a chic piece of bedroom furniture to add a sitting area to the room as well as a short-term home for your clothes. The tufted cushion top is available in array of fabric options, such as brushed heathered cotton, tweed and luster velvet to name only a few. And color possibilities also greatly vary from gray to purple and many in between, corresponding with any color scheme.


If you prefer to hide away some of your treasures when not in use, such as photo albums, favorite books and keepsake boxes, a storage bench positioned under your bedroom window or even in the hallway just outside the room offers several uses: storage, seating and designer furnishing. When fully upholstered, a natural-colored, linen weave bench offers a customized look, especially when it has distinctive nailhead trim. A wood-framed bench that opens easily with hinges on both sides gives easy access to your items kept in a safe place.


Are you looking to add a little splash to your bedroom space? How about replacing your wooden vanity chair with a round stool fancied in Mongolian lamb’s fur? Choose gray, white, deep red, dark blue or turquoise green. Next time you settle down in front of your mirror to make up your face or ready your hair for the day, you are sure to take pleasure in the cushy feel of a soft and furry sitting place.


Do you have a rather spacious bedroom that is calling for more furniture to fill the space? Answer that call with a metal slat bench that has mid-century appeal to land in front of your bedroom sofa. Our FSC-certified wood benches offer the space a retro style, yet allow you to make your contribution to a greener environment with sustainable furnishings. As a coffee table to your bedroom sitting area, use the bench to display your favorite home and garden magazines or other preferred ready material on the bottom, slatted shelf and exhibit your knick-knacks collected from your travels or antique shops on the top shelf.


Trying to decide how to add sitting space to your cozy studio apartment? No problem. Fill the area at the end of your bed with a bench that doubles as a small couch for your guests to perch. A mid-century, Italian design offers soft curves with a nice, thick cushion top for comfortable sitting. A bench with a low back is perfect to sit up against the foot of your bed, yet gives additional seating options for a bedroom and living room in one.


Pair your bedroom chair with a tufted ottoman to complete your room’s furnishing needs. Consider a low ottoman that features ornamental turned legs and a chocolate-stained finish. In solid colors, choose any shade from brown to yellow. If you prefer a different style of tufted ottoman, one with a wider cushion and taller legs allows the piece double as extra seating in your bedroom or in the living room. A button-tufted stool resides in your bedroom as compact seating or necessary to place in front of your vanity. If a certain fabric goes best with your decor, choose anything from a retro weave to a shadow weave to complement the space.


Expand the use of your sleeping quarters by adding an ottoman that also plays the role of a storage space for extra blankets and throw pillows or a small table to temporarily hold clothes. Having a round top that removes completely allows easy access to the storage area, and with a wood veneer base, it gives a good color balance for any room decor.
