The Manor Bench ($3,695) reminds me of something I'd see on the set of a Jane Austen movie, which of course means that I absolutely crave it. Blame it on my weakness for period pieces and Colin Firth if you must, but this handsome bench is something I'd love to put in my home. Made of solid oak, this bench has a high-planked back, recessed panel doors, and a seat that's big enough for a couple of lovely ladies to sit on while awaiting their handsome suitors. It also has two cabinets and a drawer for storing your novels or exchanging love notes.
What do you think? Does this bench play a supporting role in any of your imaginary romantic scenes?
