The Best Modern Entryway Benches In Every Design, Style & Trend

Lifestyle expert, journalist and interior design blogger Candie Anderson of candieanderson.com has the scoop on the best modern entryway benches in every top interior design, style and trend.

 

 

With the holiday entertaining season rapidly approaching, I have been inspired to update my entryway with a gorgeous console table, trendy decor, and a stunning modern entryway bench. Modern entryway benches come in a wide array of styles – from leather to woven, wood, and that’s just the beginning! Like many of you, I have been gravitating toward modern pieces that will complement my existing furniture and decor pieces beautifully. That’s just one of the amazing things I love so much about this trend – it pairs well with rustic, minimalistic, traditional, and coastal pieces to name a few! 

Modern storage benches are perfect for busy parents on the go in the mornings! You can store shoes or backpacks in them so they’re not cluttered by the front door. Having a more organized home is one of my goals for 2022, and having a designated spot for sneakers I wear daily is essential!

One of the many trends I love this season is woven leather furniture! I absolutely adore woven leather chairs, counter stools, and benches to name a few. They will make a statement on their own and are sure to garner compliments! A gorgeous modern leather entryway bench is the perfect place to sit down and put your shoes on for work or take them off when you get home (and slip into your sneakers or slippers).

If you’re searching for the perfect bench for your entryway, you’re in luck! Today, I’m excited to share 24 of the best modern entryway benches in a wide array of styles, materials, colors, trends.
