Have you seen this yet? It’s been all over Pinterest and I’m loving it!
The idea of using an upholstered bench, sofa or settee as part of your dining seating is such a chic way to add some style to your dining area. Adding these soft pieces brings a whole new feeling to the table!
Why settle for 6 or 8 matching dining chairs when you can add a brightly colored settee or a funky print to the party? These pieces not only provide comfort for your guests, but they also serve as a focal point amongst the rest of the dining furniture.
I love the idea of a built-in bench like this for extra storage for things like placemats, napkins and other serving ware. The extra tall upholstered back rest above is extra dramatic.
What do you think? Would you swap out some of your dining chairs for one of these upholstered pieces? I love it and am kicking around some ideas to incorporate it into my own dining space!
