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.
When I think of benches at a dining table I am immediately brought back to Sunday afternoon picnics in the park. The bench however has come a long way and now plays an important part in the design of the eating area. Whether formal or informal bench seating typically allows more people to sit at a table (compared to one that just has chairs) and can bring important stylistic elements to the overall aesthetic of a dining area.
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.
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.
