I've been hunting high and low for bench seats to go with a dining table for our soon to be finished dining area but I'm still unsure of exactly what will work in the space. I had visions of a funky bench seat piled with cushions for along the wall and a dining table that can be pushed right up against the wall with the bench seats sitting neatly underneath and pulled out when we need extra room.
Unfortunately all the bench seats I've found look a little outdoorsy which is not the style I'm going for - I want a bench style but something that's comfortable to sit on for long dinners over lots of wine and conversation! Here's a few that I've found but I'm not convinced I'm on the right track with the whole bench seat idea ...
|Freedom Furniture Brunch set $799|
|Freedom Furniture Boulder set $1799|
|Ikea Sigurd Red Bench $149|
|The Chair and Table Warehouse Perth - Replica Barcelona Bench|
|The Chair and Table Warehouse Perth - U Bench|
I'm beginning to wonder if the idea of this style of dining is really the right choice after the round up of bench seats I've found so far. It is a great space saving idea but when it comes to finding something that is going to look good along side my shiny new kitchen that has proven to be a little more difficult to come by.
What do you think about bench seats for dining - Yay or Nay?
