6 Dining Table With Bench Ideas For Dining In Casual Comfort

In today’s fast-paced world, it’s nice to just slow down and enjoy a simple meal with the people you love. A dining table with bench provides a spacious and practical solution for relaxing with family or friends, and makes a trendy alternative to a traditional table and chairs.

When you entertain guests or have a large family, it can be difficult to seat everyone around the dining table. Helping to open up your space, a bench offers a little more flexibility than dining chairs.

If you are looking to create a more relaxed and sociable dining experience, consider a dining table and bench set for your home. - we have lots of stylish dining benches for you to choose from

1. Dining table with bench and chairs, ideal for entertaining

A dining table with bench and chairs is a modern addition to your living space and the ideal choice for casual entertaining. A typical bench can comfortably seat three or four people on each long side of the table. By adding a chair at both ends of the table, you can expand the seating capacity to eight to ten people.

Take a look at our beautiful Tetbury dining collection that has extending tables with matching benches and chairs – mix and match to create the perfect dining set.

For something perfectly suited to your home, why not create a unique dining set with bench and chairs from different collections? Choose complementing styles and try experimenting with contrasting colours and materials. We particularly like how the Hudson dining table, pictured below, pairs beautifully with a faux leather tan dining bench and chairs…
