Dining Room Benches

Is there a more versatile piece of furniture than a bench? I think not. I added one to our dining room recently (see my last post) knowing if I ever wanted to go back to the old seating arrangement I could find a spot for the bench elsewhere.

A bench makes the perfect accent at the end of a bed, in an entry, or as a practical perch in a mudroom, but it’s also a handy solution for seating at a dining table. So often in a dining space we think individual chairs are the only choice. Not true! A bench helps gives it that “collected over time” look achieved by mixing a bench with chairs in a different style. The medley works for any style of dining space, from formal to casual, cottage to contemporary.

Adding a bench to your dining room is an easy way to give your space a modern look, and also provides the luxury of squeezing in a few more people at the table during the upcoming holidays. If your ideal dining space is one that is casual, cozy, and welcoming, the addition of a dining bench in a complementary style may be just the thing for your home too.
