Benches are wonderful, multifunctional seating and storage solutions for every room. I'm considering to put a few in my small apartment. I would need one corner bench in the kitchen and one in the balcony, of course with the storage.
They used to be ugly, although functional...and let me say...there are some ugly ones even now. But hey, thanks to many talented and creative people around the world, benches found their spot in the design world. here are some stylish examples
Whether you choose round or rectangular table, or whether you have a small or big space, benches are the perfect addition to your dining, kitchen or breakfast area. I would suggest custom made bench over a pre-made, so you can be sure it's made to suit your need.
