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.
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.
Use one long bench for multiple seating areas. Make the most of your space by using a built-in bench long enough to span several seating areas. Vary the height of your bench so you can position an outdoor dining table at one end and make a lounge area at the other end.
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.
