How fascinating that a simple design such as a bench has played a significant role in enhancing public spaces, encouraging social interaction, and starring in some memorable novels as the ultimate, though subtle, matchmaker. Jane Austen’s readers will remember "Pride and Prejudice," where Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy share a heartfelt conversation on a garden bench, symbolizing their growing understanding and affection. More recently, in "Bridgerton," Netflix’s blockbuster series, the spark of love often ignites while sitting on a bench.
In the world of interior design, these furniture pieces are considered versatile creations that blend functionality with aesthetics. They can serve as seating, storage, or decorative elements in various settings, from entryways to dining areas, bathrooms, and bedrooms. In children’s rooms, upholstered benches with built-in storage are a recurring favorite, combining comfort and practicality – finally, all the Legos in one place!
At Invisible Collection, we present a curated selection of unique benches that will complement all interior decoration projects. Created by contemporary star designers, including AD100 honorees, all our benches are handmade by the best craftsmen in Europe who can accommodate any bespoke request. Each piece is comfortable and aesthetically pleasing, and imbued with iconic status. The choice of materials reflects the individuality of the designer: Francesco Balzano favors marble and fine wood; Martin Massé works with contrasting black and white marble for his spectacular Cannaregio Bench. Thierry Lemaire makes a strong statement with the Kaba in bold metal, whereas Allegra Hicks explores the fantastic versatility of crocheted bronze with the Electra Bench.
We all know that, literally speaking, a bench is a long seat typically designed for multiple people to sit on, often without a back or arms. However, in contemporary design, the lines are being blurred, and what we call a bench can also be a daybed, serving as both a seating and a lounging area. Benches turned into daybeds usually feature extra elements such as an elegant armrest on one side, and/or a cushy headrest. Philippe Hurel authors the fabulous Karen Daybed, dressed in plush velvet. Emmanuelle Simon expands her Nomad collection of seating with a serene design made of natural wood. Charlotte Taylor plays with contrasting colors for her Two Tone daybed… and there is more!
