While other cities around the world celebrate the stories told, the lives lived and the moments shared on benches, we hope to 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 bench related photos, images stories and thoughts that inspire you!

Benches are HOT.

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.

The National newspaper loves benches too!




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!
