Cantor Center for Visual Arts, Stanford University – Part 1: Seating

The Cantor Center for Visual Arts at Stanford is one of our favorite art museums in the Bay Area. For starters, it’s free. It’s in a beautiful location. The building is great – a successful late 20th century updating and expansion of a lovely early 20th century classical temple of art. And it’s got seating everywhere. Atrium and lobby benches…


Chairs to lounge in and look out over campus…

Gallery seating that’s appropriate to the art (i.e. Barcelona chairs in with 20th century art)…

Comfortable sofas with arms…

Small benches placed here and there, making best use of limited space…

And places to hang out outside in the abundant Palo Alto sun.

Altogether a most comfortable, welcoming space.
