Tuck a bench between planters for built-in shade. If you could use more shade in your patio consider installing a bench nestled between a pair of big planters filled with trees. Check with your local garden center to choose a variety that does well in a pot and works with your climate.
As a divider. In an open floor plan creating small zones can give a room a more orderly feeling and be a more efficient use of space. Bordering a seating group or TV nook with a bench helps define that zone without creating a visual wall that might shrink the space. Plus a backless bench can be used from any direction allowing it to bridge different seating areas (or become an additional table for snacks or festive supplies).
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.
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.
