A very space-saving feature of dining tables with benches that you may unknowingly overlook is their storage capacity. For instance, ottomans can have a box or drawers beneath the seat. A pew-like bench may also come with drawers. You will find many designs, style, and finishing options in materials like wood, plastic, wicker, metal, and leather.
Padded Benches – Lonny: Not only do the cushions on these benches make them more comfortable, but they also add a pop of color to the space. Victorian Schoolhouse – CS Photography: It makes sense that this redesigned schoolhouse would have benches at the large dining table. The fact that they are reclaimed wood makes it even better.

Multiple Benches – VSP Interiors: The shorter benches here are used more like chairs since they are single seats, but it helps keep the view of the floor-to-ceiling window from being obstructed. Classic Cape Cod – Kelly McGuill Home: We can’t think of a dining area more suited to a bench than this classic New England-style home. The black Windsor chairs are an especially nice touch to modernize the space.

Modern Lines – Austin Patterson Disston Architects: If you want to go simple, this is the way to do it. Clean white lines echo the rest of the space, and it can tuck under the table pushed against the wall when not in use.Log Bench – Hsu McCullough Architects: We love the juxtaposition of the natural log bench with the rest of this modern home. We’re guessing it’s a great conversation piece, too.
