I have long loved floating shelves. I think they look fantastic – super clean lines and, of course, perfect storage opportunities. When I came across this low bench, it reminded me of floating shelves, reinterpreted. This pretty apartment features this look and I love it too. It almost feels like part storage and part art installation. The negative space the low bench allows provided ample space for the large artwork and for the floor-to-ceiling windows to shine. Another benefit, your flooring option (like this right here) also become a neat focal point of you space. Love that!
