Blanket boxes (or ‘storage benches’ as they are more frequently called) have been fabulously popular in family homes since the 17th Century. Their enduring appeal should come as no surprise, given their versatility, multi-functionality and even beauty.

The name ‘storage bench’ already suggests a dual function as both a bench seat and a storage solution for blankets and linens. However, in our many years as dedicated interior decorating fanatics, we have also seen blanket boxes used as coffee tables, foot rests, seating under a window, shoe storage for entranceways and as toy or dress-up boxes in kids’ bedrooms. Some have even made use of sturdy timber blanket boxes in the garage to store everything from tools to gardening equipment to barbeque accessories.

Made from a variety of materials, blanket boxes come in a range of styles and are suitable for most rooms in your home, including the verandah. Get creative – the sky’s the limit as to potential functions a stylish storage bench could serve in your family home.

Fabric protection is available for our fabric blanket boxes for a small additional cost.
