Beth Pugh. Benches. January 10th , 2018.
As with all types of furniture, quality is always extremely important. There is nothing worse than relaxing to put on makeup and then falling to the floor because the bench broke. Having a basic understanding of what makes quality vanity benches can really help with the selection process. Many vanity benches are metal, and one way to judge the quality of the metal is by checking the weight. However, most vanity benches are also very dainty, so it may be difficult to judge the quality of metal by the weight of the bench. Just remember that a very light bench may not offer as good quality as one that is slightly heavier. Also take a look at how the bench is put together. Higher quality benches will have joints that are welded together rather than screwed or bolted. These welds will also be located in very inconspicuous places if the bench is well made.
Piano Bench Tops. The most common type of piano bench top is the hardwood bench top. Most have an optional model available with a music storage compartment that is very handy for sheet music or other music accessories (my kids will hide things in our bench all the time). Fancier and more expensive seat tops will be upholstered in fabric or even leather. Most bench manufacturers have lots of fabric choices to select from and they can be made to match your interior décor without issue. Vinyl is a nice substitute for real leather if budget is a concern. I personally like the fabric seat over a leather or vinyl seat top because of the capability of the fabric to breathe.
Taking this into account, if you are looking for a piano bench to go with your Steinway piano, the two most common options are either a wood top bench, or the above mentioned artist bench (the other option would be an upholstered top bench, which while more comfortable, does not highlight the elegance of the Steinway piano as much as a finished wood top bench does, and thus is less popular). Of the two choices, the most popular is the Jansen artist bench, for both its design and usability. If youve seen a Steinway piano in a concert hall, the adjustable artist bench with it is a Jansen (and its quality is such that it is perfect for performance halls, teaching studios, and home use).
Another material used in manufacturing vanity benches is jute. While the structure is metallic, a jute seating will give a tropical setting to vanity benches. Seating can either be a cushioned one or a stuffed one. Vanity benches with in-built cushions are usually the norm, but many people choose to add a personal touch to this area. One region where makers can exercise maximum creativity is the legs of the bench. Here you will find a wide variety of designs in vanity benches. Beautifully carved legs on vanity benches with cherry wood finish are quite popular on the market. Quite often makers add some fluff in the form of feathers or even beads in vanity benches to stylize them. Queen Anne style legs are also widely available in vanity benches. Elegant and unique these vanity benches add grace to your personal vanity every day. There are several do it yourself kits available for vanity benches where you can add your own touch to the basic designs.
The personalized dad bench will be the perfect gift that will last your dad a lifetime. There is text written on the middle of the bench. In the top right hand corner there is a small hand being held by the fathers hand. The border is covered with a vine of oak leaves and small acorns to symbolize the future. Then there is the spiritual personalized bench. This bench will give you daily inspiration with the spiritual verse that has been scripted onto it. It is a very elegant bench that is laced with a vine of ivy leaves on the border and a bird and flower motif on the legs. These are fantastic unique benches, and it will look perfect in any part of your garden. Whether your garden is big or small, it will be a great fit. Any one of these benches would be a fantastic gift for anyone. Every time the bench gets sat on, it will remind that person of you.
