Thank you chemistrykaren. we did it ourselves by getting some MDF sheet cut into strips and specific sizes to make the bench, in the shop. all in all it cost less than £100, then we had a cushion and mirror made to fit the space :-)

Great to see a story extolling the importance of entrances. Apart from their practical uses, transition areas move you from type of space to another, here from the outside 'other' to the internal 'you' space [sorry, sounding a bit 'woo woo' here!]. But spending time and effort on making these spaces work and look good is well worth it. As these transformations show!
