Karen Roberts. Benches. January 21st , 2018.
The most popular, elegant and well known pianos in the world are made by Steinway & Sons, who have a tradition of making their top-of-the-line instruments for over 150 years. Steinway however, is solely a piano bench manufacturer, and do not make their own piano benches to go along with their pianos. They in fact contract out to Jansen & Son exclusively to make benches for their products. Thus, if you are looking for a Steinway piano bench, you are in fact looking for a Jansen piano bench. A brief history about Jansen: they are an American piano bench manufacturer in Wisconsin, who have been in business for over 50 years. They are known across the globe for making the highest quality benches available, using superior maple hardwood (from the East Coast of the United States or Canada), and thick, furniture quality vinyl. Jansen is best known for their artist benches, which features their heavy-duty, silent "micro-adjustable" raising mechanism (which is the best adjustable mechanism on the market).
In the ever expanding world of outdoor benches, a choice growing in consumer popularity are personalized outdoor benches. They range in styles and materials, from backless to concrete to Shorea wood. For example, as one shops online they will come upon the Keaton Personalized 60" Bench. It is a wood bench that is made from Shorea Wood. One has the ability to customize a personal statement or feature an illustration or even your companys logo on the wide center slat on the back. The bench has been elegantly designed, with sculptured arms and deep seating, it will make an enduring impression where ever it is placed.
Hall Tree Benches If your residence does not have an entryway closet, it can easily become a mess of coats and hats all piled one on top of the other. Having someplace to put these items can be resolved by using a hall tree bench. An excellent small entryway bench, these benches come in different sizes and have a seat to make it easy to remove shoes or boots. They have decorative backs and the entire look of these units is one of a great piece of furniture. If the foyer should be too small to small for placement of a hall tree bench, the fashionable design of these units will see them looking at home in the living room or family room. If you happen to be lucky enough to have a mudroom, there is no better place for the hall tree benches.
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.
Storage Benches Storage benches in the small home are a boon when it comes to keeping the area neat and clutter stashed away from the eye. Nothing can make a home look smaller than items piled in every room. Adding small indoor benches to nearly every part of your home will make the entire area seem larger. Small benches can be added to childrens rooms for a place where toys and games can be kept. Entryway benches can hold boots, shoes, and umbrellas. Bedroom benches are a great place to store extra bedding and pillows. Out of season clothing will store nicely in a bench that is lined with cedar. Sizes can be based on the amount of room that can be spared. There really isnt any place where small benches cant be placed and put to good use. They can be ordered to accommodate specific storage plans, such as drawers and doors. Some will have no back if they are going to be permanently installed and the wall behind the bench will act as the back. Others will be completely closed in and can be moved around the home as you see fit.
