Recently I have been on the hunt for the perfect dining chair and can't find anything I like. I think this is a sign — bench seating might be the solution! I have always loved the Windsor inspired communal bench…

The bench seating would look great paired with a long table and other chairs as well. Or … the bench could be pushed against the wall and brought out for additional seating when entertaining. I could think of many different reasons to convince myself that I need a bench seat.

1: Continuous Arm Bench: Thos. Moser $2,600
2: Windsor Settee: Matter $8,000
3: Windsor Love Seat: Anthropologie $1,498
4: Enfield Shaker Meetinghouse Bench: Shaker Workshops $900
5: Mori Bench: Organic Modernism $795
6: Village Black Armless Bench: Crate&Barrel $399
