Very nice – I think the lift up lid is a better idea than drawers. I installed drawers in a build like this and they are so deep you can’t find the back of them.

great looking and looks comfortable. The big mistake on these it to make the backs to straight up and looks like you really got it right. Your bottom half will thank you.
