Dorothy Draper Espana X Benches

9.21.2011

I love having a pair of benches in front of the fireplace in my living room.  My Mother gave me these more than ten years ago as she didn't need them anymore.  I had them reupholstered in Nobilis fabric with Scalamandre trim and loved them.  A lot has changed in 10 years, including, to my husband's dismay, my taste in interior design.




While these aren't so happening anymore, I'm too practical to replace them.  They're well made and would look great lacquered and reupholstered.  However, if I were to splurge, I love the X benches that are everywhere.  Here are some beauties for you.






























If you're looking for some unique X benches, I found this glamorous pair of Dorothy Draper Espana benches on eBay.  What are your thoughts?  Are X benches a passing trend, or will they be around awhile?

The ones on ebay are fabulous...not trendy at all. Can't wait to see the transformation with yours!!

I have had my eye on X benches for a while. I like the chrome version best and have found them for reasonable prices but haven't been able to pull the trigger.
I agree that your stools would be lovely with some lacquer and updated upholstery.
