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.
One element in a theme. Three types of seating at one table: slip-covered chairs a settee a wood and metal bench and a dramatic wall treatment. The bench plays an important part of being the third piece in the theme and its wood tones help balance out the white upholstered pieces.
This is the kind of bench you can style to fit into almost any decor. Add baskets to store mittens and gloves a cushion in the color of your choice to soften it up and perhaps even a few birch logs in one of the cubbies to warm it all up. I love the versatility. I can picture this bench looking great in a lodge or rustic-style interior. The leather and nailhead detail are the perfect finishing touches.
When choosing a garden bench remember that certain woods do not withstand the outside elements well. You will do well choosing cedar teak cypress and mahogany for instance. Another option although some people believe it takes away from the natural look is a wrought iron garden bench or a plastic garden bench. Finally concrete marble stone and granite are also beautiful and durable but unfortunately unless they have a cushion they are not very comfortable. When buying or building a wood garden bench remember the cardinal rule - the fewer screws and bolts the better the finished bench will look.
