This stackable bench designed by Shawn Maximo redefines "flexibility" as stand-alone seating for the entryway, dining table or bedside with the ability to transform into a console, shelving unit or room divider.
Inspired by the mobile, sturdy and versatile 19th-century campaign furniture made for travel and expeditions, designer Shawn Maximo developed the Stacking Bench for modern use as standalone seating, a low console or room dividing shelf. Leather straps bring luxurious detail while an optional cushions adds comfort.
