The Mercer Bench from Sunpan is the kind of handy, versatile furniture piece that instantly makes itself at home and you soon wonder what you did without it. Modern, unfussy, and good-looking, it will fit nicely in any contemporary setting. Use it for extra dining seating, as a boudoir bench, in the living room. The steel frame is strong, stable, and chrome finished, and the square seat amply padded, with a very comfortable, smooth faux leather, detailed with a stitched checkerboard pattern. The Mercer Bench is available in several smooth colors.
