The Dylan Bench from Villa & House is the epitome of historic design made modern, reminiscent of the fascination with African art and design of the 1930s. The slightly flared legs recall the way animal horns curve organically. The shape of the natural or dark espresso bench is universal and versatile, appropriate in a relaxed holiday home, or used as a multifunctional staple in an apartment living room. Place one in an entryway for a convenient spot to remove your shoes or float one in front of a sofa for a coffee table alternative. Though there are unique details—the shingle-like formation of the handwoven seagrass and the subtle curve of the legs—the Dylan Bench is minimal and classic.
