A popular way to transform a dining room into a relaxed, shared space, the dining bench is used in place of chairs along one side of your table. Remove the restrictions and formalities chairs can create – there’s always room to shuffle up for one more. Although they’re on-trend at the moment, you needn’t think that dining benches only belong in modern homes. We’ve selected some options that demonstrate their suitability for any style of dining room, from traditional to urban.
The warm colours of the Colorado Cross Leg Bench in rich mango wood contribute to a cosy dining room atmosphere.

It can give a room a stylish update as well as provide some extra seating for any unexpected guests.
