The material used for making cushions should be water-resistant and easy to clean. Some people prefer stowing their cushion when not in use but most never do that. So durable and long lasting cushions should be bought to avoid unnecessary replacement. Today cushions are even made with natural materials for the more green minded. Some of the most used materials are fibres bamboo long-lasting hemp cloth and cushions coated with vegetable oil for durability. The price of the pads varies with the quality and they are available in plenty of designs.
As a sofa table. That same bench that’s on hand to add dining seating or to hold party spillover can double as a slim sofa table during the day holding books decorative planters and small storage boxes. It gives an open floor plan a visual anchor for the seating and functional but beautiful “shelf” space.
Family gathering spot. It is clear that this home is meant for a large family and the main gathering spot is this table near the fireplace and wall of windows. Benches in this setting allow for a certain intimacy that chairs are otherwise unable to provide. I envision a large family gathered around the dinner table sharing stories of years past.
Clearing the way for the view. Who says bench seating has to be on the side of the table? The benches at the end create a perfectly unobstructed view down the table to the outside. Sometimes the selection of a bench is more for what it isn't than what it is.
