As I was doing a little research on the end-of-bed bench for this roundup, I stumbled upon the most perfect explanation from designer and blogger Emily Henderson of why, if you have the room, everyone should have one. "Having the right bench is like having a nice belt – it's not something you want to spend money on, but you need it. Every day when you get dressed, you grab for it, feel it missing, and wish you had one." It's the perfect spot for the "plop and drop" of your daily dressing regiment, a perch to help you get on your shoes, pants, tights (or tight pants).
