Each piece of furniture has a primary function, the one that defines it and that probably also gave its name. But this doesn’t mean it can’t also incorporate other functions that aren’t specific to it in particular. For example, a sofa can also be a bed, a table an also be a desk and a bench can also be sued for storage.
The Mägi Bench is an interesting example in this case. As you may have guessed or noticed, the bench is not just a simple piece of furniture to seat on. Its design also incorporates several storage compartments. In addition to that, the bench’s design and shape also makes it a sculptural piece and a wonderful element that contributes to the overall décor of a home. This gives it a third function, that of decorative or accent piece.
