Sculpted with a rasp by American craftsmen from a piece of solid wood, the horn-shaped legs and exposed platform make this cushy, tufted bench a veritable—and amazingly versatile—jaw-dropper. Set it near a coffee table, at the end of a beautiful bed, or as the ultimate indulgence in a dressing room.
