The comfortable and multi-functional Tri-fold bench

Benches are not the most popular pieces of furniture which is not quite fair because they are exceptionally functional and comfortable to sit on. Some of them take the comfort to a whole new level. It’s the case of the Tri-fold bench that preserves the classical design of this piece of furniture but adds a modern twist to it.

The Tri-fold bench features a very simple frame. It’s made of wood and it’s durable and stable. It has clean and simple lines and it provides support for the back while also allowing you to lie down and relax. The signature element of the Tri-fold bench is the three-layer pad area that is particularly comfortable. It’s a flexible addition that can be used in multiple ways, making the bench even more versatile that it already is.

This modern bench was designed by Douglas Leckie. It features a beautiful combination of materials and textures. The wooden frame is extremely simple and lacking any details that might make it stand out. The padded area can be completely folded and placed on the outer sides of the bench. It can serve as armrest or pillow in case you want to relax. There’s also an extra mat that can be used for the back. It’s flexible and it increases the comfort level. The bench has a contemporary look, minimalist and functional, not to mention flexible and versatile.
