Buyers freezing on a bench in Paris!

While waiting for a taxi in the courtyard of a showroom in the Marais, we weren’t sure if the bench would handle the weight but we couldn’t resist taking a photo to capture the romantic look of the vintage bench with pots of flowers!

Thankfully, no bench or plants were hurt in the taking of this photo.

Stockholm – Carina Slater


These are my favorite benches in my favorite place, Old Town in Stockholm, Sweden.


On a bench you can rest your legs, read a book, enjoy an ice cream, sit under the tree with the one you love.


I live in Oud Metha in Dubai since May last year.

I love it here but miss my Stockholm.

Paris – Coco de Colette

I am in Paris for fashion week, and after a long day of trade shows, fashion shows and show rooms, all I want to do is rest my little feet.

Paris is so beautiful at night, wherever you are. But it is especially beautiful when viewed from a Parisian bench.

Stratford Upon Avon- Nicola Clements

My Wedding bench

The building is a Neo-Gothic Mansion set in 40 aches of land with the river Stour running through. Actually it’s the most haunted residence in the UK… I didn’t  find this out until after we booked the wedding! Incredibley romantic and picturesque with stunning views.

The benches are old and weathered. 

They seem to blend into the scenery naturally and see the seasons come and go and many weddings alike. So they hold a lot of nostalgia and sentiment.

Dubai – Nadine de Mascarel

I looooooove this project!!!

Here’s my bench, found last weekend. It’s on a little piece of sand opposite Mercato. I love the color and the shells attached to it. If you come back when the tide is high, it’s even cooler as the bench is in the water.

About the s*uce benches project

Every year s*uce launches an initiative that gets people thinking about the kind of love that transcends flowers, diamonds, chocolates and candy. (Though those are by all means very lovely and extremely important things).

A few years ago we thought about how Trees Need Love Too, and launched a green campaign (unleashing the tree huggers within), and last year we suggested 10 ways to Unlock Your heart.

This year, we urge you to Find a bench. Fall in love.

While other cities around the world celebrate the stories told, the lives lived and the moments shared on benches, we hope to eventually increase the number of benches in our city so that someday we too can tell the stories that have unfolded upon them.

Sometimes you don’t need a restaurant or coffee shop, you just need a bench.

And so we invite you, the community, to contribute and join in the conversation by sharing the photos, images stories and thoughts that inspire you!

Please email all your bench moments, thoughts, photos, designs and/or stories to benches@sauceloves.com and we will upload them.

We want to hear all your thoughts.  This initiative is as big as you make it!
