Rowena Edwards' Sliding-Seat Kin Bench

Welsh furniture designer Rowena Edwards’ Kin Bench is a handsome piece of furniture with a whimsical inspiration:

“The Kin Bench fits nicely within a hallway and has a sliding seat feature for you to decide how close you want to be to your seating partner. This was inspired by the observation of an argument and how sometimes a little space when getting ready is needed, but the functional sliding seat is also there to help the next step of the apology, so that saying sorry is never out of reach.

“The bench also allows easy access to two sliding stuff trays below, and to the base rails which act as useful storage and shoe racks.”

I love the look of the grain, and the obvious care Edwards has taken with picking each piece.
