After spreading the word about how Botanist ‘Pixel Burst’ series owners can receive a free bench pad by sending photos in use, we had a tremendous response from happy customers who were willing to share.  Pat Aiken of Santa Barbara, CA generously provided stunning photos of her new modern loft highlighting her ‘Pixel Burst’ bench as a focal point in the living area.  

Pat and her husband built the mixed-use space with an upper residence and lower office for a“downtown experience” in Santa Barbara.  “It was such fun researching and creating a contemporary look instead of the typical style,” Pat tells us.  It is easy to see the beautiful outcome of their design goals through a perfect balance of streamlined architecture and modern furnishings.  Well done, Pat!

We interviewed Pat for feedback about the role her Botanist bench plays in her life.  Here is what she had to say.

How did you hear about Botanist?
I took a leap of faith and purchased virtually every item for this space online, from faucets and appliances to lighting and furnishings.  I came across Botanist in one of my Google searches for contemporary furniture.

What made you choose Botanist?
As soon as I saw the Botanist benches online, knew I had found exactly what I was looking for: versatility, uniqueness, graphic punch - they definitely have the “Wow!” factor.  I also appreciated knowing that my purchase would benefit a non-profit.  The big challenge, though, was selecting just one among all those stunning designs.  

What do your friends say about your Pixel Burst bench?
Friends are wide-eyed when they come up the stairs.  Our Pixel Burst bench is the first thing they see.  They’ll exclaim, “Where did you find this?!” or simply, “That’sawesome!”

How do you feel about the finish and level of quality in fabrication?
A great design with a great price: it’s heavy, durable, and beautifully finished.  First class product.  I love it.

Would you recommend Botanist?
Although the shape is contemporary, I believe that the variety of designs offered would allow these benches to work really well with any style, and I would highly recommend them to anyone - they exceed expectations!

Thank you, Pat, for helping us to inspire others to choose Botanist through your great experience with ‘Pixel Burst.’  After all, a happy customer is a lifelong customer!
