When you’re shopping benches, we urge you to keep comfort in mind. Often a design can look appealing, but can be very uncomfortable. After awhile, the bench ends up being the place that collects coats and such.

The ones we offer all come with an upholstered seat in your choice of fabric, vinyl, and sometimes leather.

We carry a variety of designs and features. Below, are some of the highlights from this collection.

Custom Made Benches

At the heart of our brand lies the promise of personalization.

Each piece of our furniture, including these, is tailored to resonate with your distinct style and aesthetic.

Choose from an array of wood or metal finishes to perfectly complement your space. And to ensure the utmost satisfaction, select the upholstery that best suits your design palette.

Unsure about your choice? No worries! We’re delighted to offer free samples, allowing you to feel and visualize the materials in your own environment before making a final decision.

Metal Benches

Benches like the Athena are made of solid steel and are sought after because of their strength and durability. Metal is going to allow you to add more weight to it than wood.

We offer beautiful metal benches for your entryway, living room, bedroom, and dining rooms.

Storage Bench

For a quality storage bench, we recommend the Treviso made by Darafeev. Simply lift up the top to reveal storage inside.

Great for Storing Shoes

Storage benches are great for storing shoes, bags, umbrellas, seasonal clothing such as hats, gloves, and scarfs and even gardening tools or outdoor supplies.

Great for storage in the bedroom

For the bedroom, you can store additional clothes, blankets, pillows, and books.

Great for storage in the dining room

In the dining room, a storage bench can hold additional kitchen accessories, kids toys, placemats, and seasonal decor.

Kitchen & Dining Bench Seating

Benches have been increasing in popularity in the dining area because they add visual appeal and extra seating space. Kids also like them because they can sit together with siblings.

However, as we’re all about comfort, there is only one caveat to kitchen bench seating and that is if you have three people sitting on a bench, it may be tough for the person in the middle to get up and out.

With that said, we recommend bench seating for two at the dining table. This allows both people to be comfortable and get in and out when they need to.

Various Bench Sizes

Benches come in all shapes and sizes and we have a variety of them here at Barstool Comforts.

If you’re shopping for a dining room bench, keep an eye on the space between your table legs. If you order a bench that is the same width as your table, the bench won’t be able to slide under your table.

If you’re shopping for a bedroom bench, you will often want to stay with the same width or length as your bed. If your bench is not as wide as your bedroom, it may look odd with extra space to the left and to the right of your bed.

If you’re shopping for an entryway bench, look for a size that fits your space and the function you need it for. For example, if you have kids, you may need a wider bench so 2-3 kids can sit down at a time.

60-Inch Benches

The most popular size bench is 60 inches wide as it allows 2-3 people to sit comfortably.

Our 60-inch benches come upholstered, with arms or backless, and storage.

We also offer 52.5-62″ wide benches.

Bar Height Bench

Our #907 wood bar stool bench is perfect for game rooms or billiard rooms looking to take a seat and keep an eye on the action.

You can also place this bench in your living room with a pub table and create a set.

Versatility of Benches: More Than Just Seating

As you can see, benches serve multifaceted roles, extending far beyond mere seating. Their versatile nature can significantly amplify the functionality of any room, ensuring both aesthetics and utility coexist seamlessly.

Common Questions

What size bench should I get for my entryway?
Choosing the right size bench for your entryway primarily hinges on the dimensions of the space and the intended functionality. Start by measuring the width of your entryway, aiming for the bench to occupy two-thirds to three-quarters of that width, ensuring there's a 2-3 feet clearance in front for easy movement and access. Depth and height are equally vital; the bench should offer a comfortable seating depth without obstructing the path, and its height or backrest shouldn't overshadow architectural features.
Can I place a bench at the foot of my bed?
Certainly! Placing a bench at the foot of your bed can be a stylish and functional addition to a bedroom. It serves not only as a decorative focal point, enhancing the room's aesthetics, but also offers a convenient spot to sit while dressing or undressing. Moreover, many bedroom benches come with storage options, providing a discreet place to store extra blankets, linens, or even clothing. When selecting a bench for this purpose, it's important to consider its size relative to the bed, ensuring it doesn't obstruct pathways or look out of proportion. The design and material should ideally complement your bed and the overall theme of your bedroom.
How much space should be left around a bench in a dining area?
In a dining area, ensuring adequate space around a bench is crucial for comfort and functionality. Typically, you should leave at least 24 to 30 inches of space behind the bench, allowing room for people to slide in and out comfortably. Additionally, if the bench is placed opposite chairs, there should be a minimum of 42 to 48 inches between the edge of the bench and the chairs to provide enough legroom and allow for easy movement when seated. This spacing ensures that diners can move without feeling cramped and facilitates smooth circulation around the dining area. Remember, while these are standard guidelines, the actual space might vary based on the specific design of the dining area, bench, and any other adjoining furniture.
What type of cushioning is best for a bench used frequently?
For benches that are frequently used, it's wise to choose materials designed for durability and ease of maintenance. We suggest performance fabrics, especially those by Crypton, known for their stain-resistance and longevity. Alternatively, vinyl, bonded leather, or genuine leather make excellent choices, as they not only exude a luxurious feel but are also effortless to clean, often requiring just a simple wipe down to retain their pristine appearance. These materials stand the test of time and ensure your bench remains in top condition despite regular use.
Is the bench delivered assembled or will I need to put it together?
Every bench we offer arrives at your doorstep fully assembled, so you can enjoy its comfort and style immediately, straight from the box!

Enjoy comfort daily.
