We have had an awful lot of requests for a little bench just like this one. We call it a hall bench, but it can be used in other areas of your house. In the hallway it's ideal to sit on when the kids or yourself are changing shoes . Shoes store easily underneath, out of the way, but still handy to get to. Next to the phone it makes a great gossip bench. Our TS-29 Telephone Stand and this bench compliment each other very nicely. At the foot of the bed it makes a very nice place to put your extra pillows or quilts. We are sure that you can come with even more special uses for this great piece.
