A common idea in interior design,the Rule of Three states that objects grouped in odd numbers are much more memorable, effective and appealing than those grouped in even numbers. Three is the magic number! 

When arranging objects on a surface in complementary fashion, one has to be short, one tall and one medium, bridging the distance. Here, this idea was beautifully recreated on the Nelson Bench 4 feet. The painting, the planter and the cushion all fit the rule , while leveling up the bench.

2. Use It as Side Table
