Much overlooked and yet quite possibly the perfect item for a generous sized hallway or boot room; the monks bench.
Ideally a table ( sometimes ) or a settle (at other times ) with storage in the trunk or seat - so in my opinion, a great hider of shoes, trainers and boots and bloody useful too.
Did monks ever use these? Debatable…. Could you use one? Potentially!
Full dimensions below may help you figure that out:
Seat height 49cm
Table height 73cm
Height of back rest 100cm
