If it is classic styling that you want, or just to create a sensational setting, indoor wood benches have just that. Indoor wood benches that have storage space are a lot more decorative and sensible additions to add to your home. They are the best in rooms that all your clutter seems to accumulate in. Although there are some basic designs of indoor wood benches that are available, most of them are really attractive and tend to add appeal as well as being able to function really well wherever they are placed. In an entryway it is always a good idea to consider indoor wood benches that are equipped with hooks so that you can hang all coats and any other items. Any indoor wood bench that is more formal looking and is equipped with storage space, would go perfectly in places like your living room, where you can store blankets and pillows.
The floor press is a powerlifters best friend. The set up is simple, and the logic behind the motion is even more obvious. All you need to do is set up a bar raised from the floor high enough that you can get your elbows below it, then you perform the same motion as a bench press, you push. The great thing here is that you are just focusing on the top part of a pressing motion, isolating the muscle fibers that are engaged when you try to finish a real bench press. Also, the floor press takes leg drive completely out of the question, hitting your chest and triceps with full force. Train moderately heavy for strength and a little bit of hypertrohpy, think 6-8 reps per set.
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.
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).
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.
