Church Pews Used as Furniture in the Home

Love It or Hate It? Church Pews at Home

At an antique store a couple of weeks ago I saw two beautiful, old, wood church pews. The quality of the wood, the intricacy of their carvings, and the ages of the pieces lent them to be a bit out of my price range, but I've been thinking about ways they could be used in my own abode ever since. I remembered this bohemian home that managed to incorporate a gorgeous Gothic pew into its modern space. I think a low one would look amazing as a window seat of sorts in my living room. Would you like to have this furnishing in your home? Would it be your style? Or is it too sacrilegious — or too religious — for you?

My mom had a long one on our front porch for years. It was perfect, because our porch was so long but not very deep. Hers was very simple, not as ornate as the one pictured, so many people didn't even realize it was a pew.

I would have never thought to do that but it looks amazing when you have a large amount of space so that it can be a focal point

If I had the space, it would be an awesome in an entryway; come in, sit down and take your shoes off!
