Deco Stools at Railway Station

Every time I see an arrangements of chairs, benches or other apparatus used for sitting, I take note with my camera. Here are some other examples: Park Bench Series No. 1, Park Bench Series No. 2, Park Bench Series No. 3, Bench Series No. 4, Bench Series No. 5, Bench Series No. 6, Bench Series No. 7,  Bench […]

Bench Series, No. 15: Opulent Bench

Back at the car wash today. The waiting room had a very cushy bench that I couldn’t pass up. See these posts for the other benches in the series: Bench Series No. 1; Bench Series No. 2, Bench Series No. 3, Bench Series No. 4, Bench Series No. 5, Bench Series No. 6, Bench Series No. 7, Bench Series No. 8, Bench Series […]

Bench Series No. 8: Corner Bench

The seating area is very wide; too wide for anyone to sit back, which is probably for the best, as there is no backstop against which to […]

Park Bench Series No. 3
