63 Badass Benches

From Living Furniture to Graphic Wave Benches

— December 20, 2009 — Art & Design
Benches are boring. Wait, no, I mean benches are the bee's knees! Yes, we all know benches are kind of bland, but that is why we are here to provide you with examples of benches that raise the bench mark (yuck:I just stepped in a huge pile of terrible pun) past boring and take it to unbelievable. 

I can guarantee that you will look at benches and the act of sitting in an entirely new perspective. Whether you're interested in mobile billboard benches or the transformer benches, I am confident that you'll be searching for similar seating options!

Implications - I can guarantee that you will look at benches and the act of sitting in an entirely new perspective. Whether you're interested in mobile billboard benches or the transformer benches, I am confident that you'll be searching for similar seating options!
