Hi friends!! Over the weekend I made a fun purchase and it is a knockoff of the bench in the image below. This style of bench is called a Lutyens bench in honor of Sir Edwin Lutyens. He was a famous British architect who created the style of the bench. My best friend growing up had them at her home, and I have loved them ever since. They just scream elegant English garden, right?
They can be very pricey from places like Restoration Hardware, but as you will see below, I found a smaller version for a very reasonable price. The lines are so beautiful, it looks great in black, white, or even natural teak. It is so pretty you could even use it indoors.
If you need one more reason to love the Lutyens bench, I think I found one! This must be from a Polo ad, right? I will take it!
I purchased this one from Hayneedle and it was on sale for only $250! Such a great price. I heard about it from my blogging friend Pam over at Simple Details (that girl knows how to find a deal!) It is the perfect size for this small covered spot I have on my porch.
This beauty is from Walmart and it is only $129. Talk about getting the look for less.
What do you think? Timeless or too traditional? As soon as mine arrives, I will snap some shots to share with you.
Stay tuned because later in the week, I have an awesome giveaway for you. You won’t want to miss it.
