BENCHED-A FAVORITE REINTERPRETED

I've loved Bunny William's Red Tape bench for ages. It's sleek, sexy legs and touch of red trim makes it a glamorous starlet, perfect for a stylish foyer or entryway. I wanted to use the bench for a clients apartment landing but the space required a longer bench with taller legs.  
My upholsterer came to my rescue with a pair of beauties--the legs a rich brown, upholstered in a pretty Candice Olsen for Kravet damask with a rich terracotta tape from Samuel and Sons to complete the look. 
   The bright paprika color echos the mosaic floor trim and adds a needed pop of color to the landing. We'll be adding beautiful alabaster pendant fixtures and bamboo mirrors this week--can't wait to share the big reveal!
