    How perfect! We’re re-doing our roof deck this summer and this is exactly the piece I’m looking for! Hooray!

  4. Kellie

    Now THAT is a beautiful bench – can’t decide if I would use it outside or INSIDE – I could think of a few places inside my house where that would look FABULOUS – especially the entryway!!!!!

    HELLO, where have you been all my life? Erin Gates over at Elements of Style introduced me to your blog, and it’s FABULOUS. I have spent the morning checking it out — I particularly loved the Coco Chanel apartment visit, and the tie-in of her stylish apartment with her revolutionary clothes. Because even grander than being stylish, she was her own woman, and she was revolutionary.

    Looking forward to being a loyal blog follower.

    And, of course, love the bench. The black lacquer — very chinoiserie. Perfect for the renovated old church loft i am moving into.

    much continued success,
    Kirstan Barnett

    What a beautiful bench! We’re in the process of buying a house and this will be the first time we will have a real outdoor space – this would be perfect.

    I can’t believe it! I was looking at a bench similar to this two weeks ago and thought: wouldn’t this piece be lovely in my garden.

  11. kate

    when my grandfather enters contests with little slips of paper, he always folds the corners “for luck”….since this is the internet, i can’t very well do that….but i’m folding lots of virtual luck into this contest…hope i win!

    I love that you and EOS are teaming up for this giveaway. I’ve been a fan of EOS for a long time and found The Well Appointed House through Erin. Now I’m a true follower! The bench is fantastic – as are all of your items! Thanks for the inspiration!

  13. Katie

    Great bench!!! My husband and I are in the process of redecorating our house for the arrival of our first child in August! 🙂 This would be a nice addition. Thanks for the opportunity!

  14. Tamecca

    Once upon a time in the Borough of Brooklyn, there lived a charming, family of seven (not a typo, we have 5 kids in NYC). Their tasteful home was filled with lots of love, a little commotion and well tons of design monographs, but their garden was not so charming and enchanting. If only they had a beautiful lacquered bench to position under the gigantic Sargent Cherry tree or near the Japanese Maple tree….can you see it….I know I can.

  15. Duncan Fuller Interiors

    This bench is just so snazzy! Since becoming a new home owner last year and have been eyeing it for our deck… with the back yard overhaul of 2010, I could promise this chic bench would go to a very loving and fun home! I always surf your site to gain some inspiration, you have amazing items! Thank You!

    Wow, this is one of the best giveaways I’ve seen! I would lurve this Chippendale-esque bench to give the hub. He is right now outside tacking the 15′ long New Dawn roses to the roof of the garage. What a guy.
    ps love the blog, too!

  17. suzannem80

    Yeah!!! That bench is gorgeous! I am waiting to close on my first home in May, and this bench would be soooooooooo perfect for the little garden in my new home! Love!

  18. Jamie

    Follower!!! That bench is AMAZING!!! I’ll dream about having it in my yard because chances are I won’t with the give-a-way…looking at it is almost enough!

  19. Christina

    Since you partnered with EOS, I started to follow… and now officially! I love your taste and I have been searching high and low for seating for our porch! We just bought a brick georgian 1940s house with black trim and shutters. This bench would look perfect!

  20. Lisa RS

    Beautiful bench! So excited to find this blog through Erin at Elements of Style. I’m going to fight the urge to stay inside reading blogs, but I will be back later looking for ideas for my backyard redo. I’m shopping for new patio furniture and would LOVE to incorporate this classic look!

  21. Devon Pearce Fahner

    Found you via Elements of Style… Happy to now be a follower! What a great giveaway! We just adopted two puppies… I can’t think of a better place to sit and watch them play outside on a beautiful spring day!

  22. Mlle Anne

    Pretty pretty please with a big fat cherry on top!

    This bench would be the perfect accoutrement for my summer project, “Pimp my Patio” which despite the trashy-fantastic title actually involves a pile of good taste, I swear!

    Your newest and avid follower,


  23. Marissa
