Wooden Benches

A sleek and simple seat that can be used in an array of different spaces throughout a house. These ten wooden benches are robust yet simple enough to compliment any style.  


Kim Bench

Luca Nichetto


For his Nichetto collection for De La Espada, Luca Nichetto has been reimagining the design language of 1950s American furniture. Kim, a family of nested items including two tables and a bench, is a case in point. Available as a set or as stand alone pieces, the three items in the Kim family share common materials, while each having their own distinct form. Simple but with a strong sense of character, Kim’s finished wooden surfaces straddle the boundaries between the natural and the manmade. Designed by Luca Nichetto and manufactured by De La Espada for the Nichetto brand.

Merton Bench

De Jong and Co.


An all-purpose bench for any space. Reminiscent of Shaker furniture in minimalism and simplicity but more refined in fit and finish. Angled legs provide poise and stability. An almost two and a half inch thick seat creates heft and presence.

Folk Walnut and Steel Bench



Sleek steel accents add a hint of industrial style to this handcrafted bench. Made from solid wood, this table is part of Rejuvenation's collaboration with Folk, a Portland, Oregon-based furniture and home goods comapny. With a team of artists, woodworkers, and fabricators, Folk lives by the tenant of keeping things simple, kind, and honest.

Georg Bench

Chris Liljenberg Halstrøm


The Georg Collection (2013) is the work of Chris Liljenberg Halstrøm, a Nordic designer who studied in Sweden and Denmark. Operating from her studio in Copenhagen, Halstrøm takes a minimalist approach to maximizing functionality. The Georg Bench works as a standalone piece and coordinates well with the console and stool. Includes a cushion secured with leather straps. Made in Denmark.

P.S. Keep it in the family with two of our other favorites, the Georg console and wooden stool. Find them in our other Top Ten posts!

PP266 Chinese Bench

Hans Wegner

$8,600.00 - $9,768.00

Feeling quite confident about the strength and agility of his iconic Chinese Chair design, Wegner was bold enough to develop the construction by designing a bench, thus creating an even stronger character. For Wegner this is the only example of this kind of progression of shape and design, from wooden armchair to bench, and thus the Chinese Bench remains a unique and extraordinary accomplishment. Solid wood frame available in ash or black. Seat in papercord available in either natural or black.

Neri & Hu
