I love me a well-made Danish slat bench. Some Mid Century pieces either aren't very practical for the way we live today, or are so definitively "retro" in their design that they may not stand the test of time (and your evolving tastes).
A great Danish slat bench, though, transcends eras, styles, and fads. It will always look great in any home, put to any use, in any room. The size of this one makes it ideal for a small entry or at the foot of a bed. I've noticed that many bedrooms with modern design are rather barren; a platform bed with no headboard perhaps, and a plain white down duvet. A bench at the foot of the bed can visually "anchor" the sleeping area and give it a bit more definition. A friendly stack of magazines on top might even invite you to take a few extra minutes in the morning!
