Seating is an important part of any living space. It needs to be comfortable, fit in with the overall room design, and maximize the seating options without taking up too much room. Benches are a great choice for adding attractive seating to any space, and at west elm, we have a number of benches to choose from.
Get a bench for your entryway that does double duty as a place to sit down and take off shoes and remove jackets and also serves as a storage area. Wooden benches with bottom storage shelves have room for baskets underneath to corral backpacks, lunchboxes and other small items, and hooks on top to hold umbrellas, purses and dog leashes. Line boots and shoes on the rack on the bottom to keep them from tracking mud in the house, or find a bench with a closed storage cabinet and a top that lifts up to easily keep items out of sight.
Dining benches are a great way to add seating for a crowd to a dining room. Available in multiple colors and designs, they slide up to the table and have room to seat up to four people. Use them as part of regular seating for large family dinners, or slide them against the wall in a family room for entertaining and take them to the dining room when necessary.
Upholstered benches make nice accessories in the bedroom and a comfortable place to sit and dress or undress. Some benches offer additional storage with drawers or seats that lift up with room for extra linens and bulky benches. Get creative with seating that goes beyond typical chairs.
