Having a bench, instead of dining chairs, at your dining table can actually do a lot for your space. It makes the dining area look more spacious, because you are doing away with visual volume in the form of seat backs. Benches are also useful for squeezing in more people around the table — good when you have guests over! Also, in an open-concept dining area, having a bench doesn’t break the visual flow between spaces, since it is low-slung.

Narrow Bench – KitchenLab: We’re generally used to seeing the bench on the side that is closest to a wall, but this arrangement allows for an unimpeded view of the rest of the living space, which is a nice detail. Yellow Settee – Minha Casa: We love this bold settee for the dining table. It might not fit everyone’s decor, but it creates a lively and welcoming space.
