Channel elements of your dream getaway. Love the Italian Riviera? A built-in stone seat with an architectural backrest and striped cushions plus café chairs and a big umbrella nearby will bring the look home. Even if you can’t jet off to Italy you can enjoy a pretty fabulous staycation in your own yard.
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.
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.
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.
