This beautiful collapsible bench slides into itself to become a one-person wooden stool.

Perfect for small homes that have a passion for hosting, this collapsible bench can become a much tinier piece of furniture when guests are not around. It can be tucked into a corner as an end table or serve as a single seat at a dining table, and then extend when two people need to be seated. The functionality of the design adds to its aesthetic as well, with the two leaves of the collapsible bench forming an elegant overlapping arch.

Urban density is motivating many young people to live in smaller spaces. Adapting to living in a small apartment or home has become a symbol of ecological awareness and fashionable urban living, and with this shift comes a demand for adaptable but tasteful furniture. This collapsible bench is a perfect example of this new style.
