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. Dining Sofa – Jessica Lagrange Interiors: This looks like the most comfortable way to dine. It’s really more of a sofa than a bench.

Upholstered Bench – Studio William Hefner: This simple upholstered bench looks great in front of the wall of windows. It adds a cozier element to the clean lines of the space. High Contrast – Nicole Hollis Interior Design: The spare wooden bench, paired with the two upholstered wingback chairs and the large wall mirror, makes for a striking dining arrangement.
Square Table – Wanda Lozada Interior Design: We generally see benches used with long tables, but this square arrangement works as well. It’s a good way to provide contrast. Hideaway Seating – Kelly Donovan: The bench is perfect in this eat-in kitchen because tucking it under the table allows for the dining space to become another counter or prep space when necessary.
Whether you have a formal dining room or a small eat-in kitchen, adding a bench instead of individual chairs can be a great choice for many reasons. Not only can it be more economical (depending on how large your table is, the cost of your chairs can really add up!), but it can also make for a more versatile seating arrangement. Plus, you can often tuck the bench under the table and out of the way if you need more floor space.
