20 Best Rustic Dining Benches You’ll Love In Your Dining Room

Lifestyle expert, journalist and interior design blogger Candie Anderson of candieanderson.com has the scoop on 20 of the best rustic dining benches in the top interior design styles and trends.

 

Dining benches are one of the hottest dining room furniture trends! Not only are they gorgeous, but they’re functional too. Dining benches are essential for a variety of reasons, especially for those with large families or those who entertain quite a bit throughout the year. One of the things I love the most about dining benches is they provide extra seating more inexpensively than if you were to buy a new set of dining chairs. They come in a wide array of styles, and this season I’m loving rustic dining benches! They are not only perfect for the dining room but are a must for the living room when entertaining guests and don’t have enough chairs. Dining benches can also be utilized as entryway benches, while some are perfect for the bedroom.

This spring there are quite a few gorgeous rustic dining benches to choose from in a wide array of styles and finishes. You can use a dining bench on one side of your table and chairs on the other, or purchase two dining benches (one for each side). Pottery Barn is one of my favorite retailers and they have an abundance of dining benches that not only match their coordinating dining tables beautifully and brilliantly, but you can utilize them with your existing dining table no matter where you purchased it! 

Today, I’m excited to share 20 of the best rustic dining benches in a variety of styles, colors, and price ranges. I hope you love them as much as I do!
