I am very happy to share with you my latest treasure, the Rush Bench. Now, you may be wondering, “Liz, what is that?” Well, I stumbled across this hidden gem on Facebook Marketplace. And I want to tell you that it has added so much character to our home. As many of you already know, I take pure pleasure in seeking out unique upholstery and furniture from a variety of sources including Facebook marketplaces, antique shops and flea markets. I love the thrill of the hunt, the satisfaction of finding the perfect piece, and the magic of turning it into something fresh and beautiful for your home. And my recent adventure with the “Rush Bench” was no exception. The first time I saw this bench listed, I fell in love. I knew it was loved, a little tired, but definitely full of potential. I knew it would be a unique addition to our cozy home, and I found the perfect spot for it: the front living room.
A “rush bench” is traditionally used as a chair, but I had another idea in mind. Instead of using it as a separate seating area, I decided to repurpose it as a coffee table to add a unique layer to my living room setting. A few small tweaks, a little cleaning and loving care transformed the bench into a great coffee table that is not only a functional item, but also a great conversation starter.
It was just wonderful. The rustic charm of the ‘Rush Bench’ blended beautifully with cozy throws and cushions to make your living room even more inviting. Best place? Its unique charm brought a whole new level of warmth and character to our space. Inspired by this beautiful transformation, I decided to review other “rush benches” from my favorite retailers. It’s great to be able to tailor these items to your style and purpose, making your home truly unique and individual. So, if you’re looking for something special for your home, we’ve put together a list of some great “rush benches” we’ve found online.
