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.
At the dining table. A two-seater bench (with or without a back) makes a flexible and stylish substitute for a few dining chairs. Couples or parents with children can sit together and individuals can spread out alone or share the bench with a friend. For more formal affairs move the bench off to one side and use just dining chairs spread around the table and when the guests are packed in pull up the bench for two extra seats (you might even squeeze in a third person if people are willing to share). With a bench handy you can suit any situation or mood.
In the foyer. Even in a large home the foyer or entry tends to be a relatively small area but so often we need a quick seat to slip off a boot wait for a slowpoke loved one or set down a package. A bench with a slim profile can be easily tucked against a wall leaving room to slip footwear below and hang jackets or leashes above so no more space is eaten up than necessary. Make sure to use a hardy material such as a rugged leather or microsuede so the occasional wet umbrella won’t spoil the look.
Make room for kids and grown-ups. A unique design like the combo bench and table shown here can provide a perch for adults sipping wine just as easily as it can play host to toddler tea parties.
