As a coffee table. A simple bench with no back or sides is versatile enough to transform from a piece of seating to a table and back. Use a bench as your coffee table in a small seating group and you can always move it off to one side as an extra seat for a few guests at a bigger get-together. Use a serving tray or a few inexpensive books to create a perfectly flat surface for resting a coffee cup or cocktail or a decorative box to stash the remotes.
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.
Balancing out the style. Talk about high style. Two end chairs and two drum pendants in black seemingly steal the show. The whitewashed table and bench however add additional character in an unexpected way. The clean squared-off lines conflict perfectly (and balance beautifully) with the curviness and drama of the chairs and lights. Notice how the bench is the same width as the table. It's showing us that it means business in both form and function.
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.
