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.
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.
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.
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.
