Furniture Lust - the X Factor

I've been long covetting the classic lines of the ever-popular X-bench.  And I'm certainly not the only one; check out the cover of the new Elle Decor book Style and Substance, and Tory Burch's fall ad campaign below.  The X-bench even made it into Jonathan Adler's Ten Commandement of Happy Chic.

He writes,
"#3 Thou shalt buy an X-Bench. Then, thou shalt buy another. Thou shalt use them in pairs, perfect under thy console or placed near thy sofa. Thou shalt rest thy feet upon them & so will thy guests. In fact, thy guests might even fight over who gets to rest upon them. Therefore, thou shalt establish house rules about thy X-Benches. Perhaps thou should consider a sign up sheet."

How sweet does a set look at the foot of a bed, under an entrance console table, or paired up for extra pull up seating in the living room? Check out the versatility of the piece in the images below, and come back tomorrow for Living Livelier's roundup of X-benches on the market, and a couple of DIY X-bench projects too!
