The bench is a beloved piece of furniture, and it’s not just for the garden. Bring the farmhouse bench back indoors to create a wonderful seating option in hallways, large living spaces and kitchens.
The farmhouse bench is wooden, lovingly styled with echoes of rural life, and, of course, comfortable and practical. Rustic charm oozes from its wooden slats, which may be curved and ornate or straight and simple, depending on just how simplistically rustic you want the styling to go.
These designs are an excellent choice if you want some additional seating at the dining table. Individual chairs opposite a bench is a great way to go, especially if you want to squeeze a few younger diners around one side of the table.
For the entrance hallway, the bench is the perfect place to pull boots on and off, so look out for benches with drawers built into them to keep those hats, scarves and gloves secure for when you really need them.
