The X Factor

Style Setters Benches

A common thread weaving throughout bench, stool and ottoman designs this season is the classic X-shaped base. Although the style is not a novel one, the accents feel updated and fresh courtesy of the ultra-glam finishes and delicious upholstery that bring an air of vivacity. Glittery upholstery, metallic finishes and animal print motifs up the ante in this stylish game, where X really does mark the spot.
