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.

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.

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