How best to style your fabric dining bench

Rocco Oak Dining Table with Faux Leather Dining Bench and Chairs

The dining bench is a versatile and stylish addition alongside any dining table. No matter what your style, there is a dining bench to match your style aspirations.

Industrial style comfort

Clean and streamlined, the industrial style is not without warmth and comfort. The utilitarian nature of a dining bench fits right into this style. Start with an industrial dining table and then bring in the dining bench.

Luxe Kensington Reclaimed Wood Dining Table with Chairs and Bench

If you thought dining benches could only be simple, ‘plank’ style benches, next to the reclaimed wood dining table think again. The high backed, leather bench bring s hint of luxury to the industrial dining room. And why not? Promote cohesion and symmetry with matching leather upholstered dining chairs and you have the basis of a delightful dining room.

If you want to bring glamour, opt for the detailed front of the Barclay reclaimed wood sideboard and don’t forget that the rug for giving a platform to whole space. In this scheme, we’ve opted for the white and grey rug from the Lois de Poortere range.

Ramp up the dining room with a refined, industrial style

The industrial style doesn’t have to be raw and rough. You can still retain the pleasing industrial dining table ‘edge’ and bring in refinement with ‘barely-there’ but noticeable detailing.

Mitcham Industrial Oak Dining Table

The Mitcham industrial 6 seater dining table with its spider-leg detailing is a great place to start. You need a dining bench with presence which is why the high-backed with button detailing of the Morton leather dining bench with arms work well. Sticking with a strong coloured palette, balance the brown and the grey with green, bringing in lush green plants. Try them as centrepieces for the table, something you can admire as you recline on the faux leather dining chairs that bring this landscape together beautifully. For the finishing touch, the spider box leg detailing of the Mitcham sideboard is a worthwhile addition as is the Louis de Poortere grey rug for adding the final note of detail.

Modern farmhouse with glimmers of gold

Gold, brassy hues are remaining with us for the coming year and frankly, we couldn’t be more delighted. We think that strong mustard yellow and brassy yellow accessories have a lot more to offer just yet.

Hoxton Oak Dining Table and Bench

This is a shade that fits right into the modern farmhouse style, a scheme that we know appeals to many. The gold rug is the starting base of this scheme, the perfect platform to ‘support’ the beautiful oak dining table from Hoxton range. Just look at those statement pedestal legs!

Clearly a glamorous farmhouse look, there is only one dining bench up to the job – the cream upholstered dining bench from our Luxe Collection. Counter the neutral palette of colour by introducing grey upholstered dining chairs for a setting that is perfect for any occasion.

Alongside the darker shades and the golden streak, you can afford to add a sideboard that brings function and practicality. The sideboard with wine rack from the Kensal Collection is proving a popular piece in its own right.

Dining benches are practical additions to the dining room (or any room in the home) but they don’t have to be plain and dull…
