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.
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).
Welcome friends with a curved border. Sharp modern lines look crisp but they are not for everyone. If you crave a softer look try introducing a round shape to your patio with a gently curved bench made from stone or wood.
In the bathroom. Speaking of an indoor-outdoor bench a water-resistant bench can be put to good use in the bathroom as well. Tuck a small one inside a shower stall to act as a seat or to hold towels and bath products or pull one up to the tub as a place to set down a good book or a glass or wine while you’re having a relaxing soak. When you want to free up room again pull the bench back out to the patio.
