Jen is looking for some info: I saw this amazing bench at the cafe in Bergdorf Goodman last time I was in NYC, and I want to recreate it at home. Where do I start? What kind of person would I hire - contractor, handyman, upholstery shop?

I'm also looking for kitchen and kid-friendly fabric that will work in solid ivory, and I'd like it to have storage underneath (either the seat lifts up or there are drawers in the base). Any advice you have on this subject would be greatly appreciated!

Please share any info on getting a project like this started with Jen in the comments...thanks!
