Casa Craving Challenge: A Chic Storage Bench

Every Thursday on CasaSugar, I'll give you a decorating theme and ask you to go Casa Craving for items that fit the theme. (Here's a post explaining what a Casa Craving is and how to create one.) And for this week's Casa Craving Challenge, I'm trying something different.

My buddy YumSugar is looking for a perfect piece of furniture, and we're going to help her find it. She wants to buy a storage bench, along the lines of this Crate and Barrel Plus Storage Bench ($899). But ideally, she'd like something a bit more chic and interesting and, preferably, cheaper.

So let's all create Casa Cravings for the best storage benches you can find. I'll feature the results next Wednesday, August 29. Just tag your Cravings with the phrase storage bench. Please let me know if you have any questions. For a list of online home stores to try,

I can't tag it, because it's not online (the only bad thing about Ikea's huge stock), but I just bought (last week) a storage bench from Ikea. It's got a white cotton slipcover on it and it's great, modern, clean-lined. It was $129.
