Is it a bench or is it a shelf? It’s both – or whatever you need it to be. Designed in 1960 by Tobjorn Afdal and an instant classic in Norway, this multipurpose bench features a raised edge that allows it to accommodate stackable accessories, such as trays and drawers. Available in walnut or oak and in two lengths and heights, this sleek, modernist item is a must for those who can’t help rearranging the living room. Available through Karakter from $1,985 (for the bench only).
