Dina Houston. Benches. December 20th , 2017.
A Jansen artist bench is the Cadillac of benches, and it is reflected in the price. Compared to other benches however, even those made by other American manufacturers, it is definitely worth the price, and like everything else is life, you get what you pay for. Take into account, that their benches are meant to last for many years, if not decades (they do use a thick, heavy duty polyester foam which will not break down), and that you are placing the piano bench next to a multi-thousand dollar instrument. When the piano is the focal point of your room, you do not want to put something cheap next to it, and putting a cheap bench next to a Steinway piano, it will definitely stick out.
Vanity benches add a great deal of charm as well as elegance to your personal vanity. Usually set in a bedroom unless there is a separate dressing room, these vanity benches have the ability to make every make-up session seem special. If you have a dressing table vanity then it makes ample sense to own a vanity bench. Vanity benches serve dual function in that they allow you to leisurely complete what is an important part of your day especially if you are a working woman. Not only do vanity benches complement other personal vanities, they also provide an unhurried setting where you can complete your personal tasks quickly and efficiently.
As it is with a lot of outdoor furniture, wooden benches are the most popular of garden and backyard benches. The most common woods for these benches are cedar, teak, pine, and cypress. Most of these garden and outdoor benches are very easily maintained, especially when made from cedar and teak. Cypress is similar to teak and cedar which also makes it very popular. All three of these woods are known for their durability and natural oils that help to keep the wood looking younger for longer. These oils also repel insects and protect from warping, rotting, or decay. These natural oils also keep insects at bay which can be positively wonderful in a garden or anywhere else in the great outdoors. These benches are also made of plastics, which also have their desirable qualities. Recycled plastic benches are virtually maintenance free and just as strong and durable as the wooden benches, which are great qualities for any occasion. These styles of benches also come in a variety of style and colors. The metal made benches are probably the least popular in the world of benches.
While plastic and metal benches are available and can in fact be customized, it is the wooden storage benches that are in heavy demand given the fact that wood does not conduct heat and provides a cool setting even on hot days. Another advantage is that mold, fungi and rot are not able to infect the wooden benches because cedar is naturally resistant against them. Storage benches are also available in two varieties, with or without backs. Furthermore the benches can have storage space tailored to your requirements. Some people prefer tiny drawers or compartments to store the clutter like shoes, socks or even umbrellas. Some others prefer to have chest-sized storage space that can hold larger items like quilts, blankets and pillows. If required for storage, benches can also contain cooler lines, meaning you can store your beverages in them. Most benches also have some sort of space beneath the arm rest. If the storage space is a chest, it is vital you look for a finger guard to protect from injury when opening the lid. Another option is to put cushions on your storage bench. This will make it more comfortable. However, the decision is now up to you.
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).
