10 Cool Contemporary Benches

As we begin to realize the negative consequences of living sedentary lifestyles and start making strides toward getting outside and being on the go more often, we still need a little break every now and then.  Today’s roundup of contemporary benches offers a host of creative moments of respite, brought to us by environmentally-minded designers who are using more and more bamboo — the darling of the sustainability movement — and repurposing previously cast-off metals into something usable and even beautiful.  Turns out, it is easy being green, so take a load off for a moment and peruse today’s eye-catching collection of modern-day lily pads.
