Original Oak Bench by Hubsch

When I saw the image in the catalogue I thought "This bench it's perfect"!
With the simplicity and functionality that characterise the Scandinavian design, this natural oak bench from the Danish brand Hubschhave a really smart design.

The soft cushions at the back and side of the bench are attached to the wooden slats with leather belts, that provides a beautiful contrast to the grey fabric and the natural wood. The cushions turned the bench not only beautiful but also comfortable.

The small shelf that can be used as side table it's that final touch that makes the Hubsch bench a really different furniture piece.

You can find it at Lagoon.

A day spent with family appreciating the beauty of the Bacalhôa Buddha Eden Garden. The visit was not scheduled, I decided to do it when I woke up, and all went well. I took my mother and my daughter, got in the car and in less than a hour we were in a very beautiful and iconic garden in Bombarral.
