Bench for your dining table

Dining room benches for the dining table

Dining room benches are a stylish alternative for those who want something different than the dining room chair or who would like to make a combination of dining room chairs and dining room sofa. Arco's dining room benches are a smart replacement or addition to dining room chairs at the table. On one side a dining room sofa and on the other side a row of chairs. By using matching cushions and upholstery, the sofa can be perfectly combined with the chairs.

In our range of dining room benches you will find wooden and steel benches in different styles, with and without arm and backrests, in various sizes.

More seating space

A dining bench is a great addition to your interior, whether your dining table is in the kitchen, dining room or living room. A bench alongside the dining table also offers more seating space than normal dining chairs. Ideals for when an extra person joins the meal, or when you’re spending a convivial evening around the table with friends. Combine a wooden or upholstered bench with our dining chairs to make your dining area a desirable place to sit. 


Wooden bench at dining table

In our collection we have a wide range of wooden dining room benches. For example, a number of sofas are designed as a family collection in combination with our tables and/or other seating furniture. In addition, we also have a wooden bench that can serve as a unique seating object or can be functionally applied to the dining table.

The following three collections of wooden benches have been designed in line with the design of tables; Slim , Slim+, Base and Essenza.

Our Close bench is designed as part of the Close seating furniture family. In addition, we have produced an iconic wooden design sofa Arc together with designer Bertjan Pot, which can be used as a dining room sofa or as a unique object in any room.

Close bench

Icelandic designer Gudmundur Ludvik designed the Close seating collection for Arco. With the aim of offering very comfortable seating for the home and work environment. In addition to the Close dining room chair, Close lounge and the Close bar stool, Gudmundur designed the Close bench. The organic design exudes lightness and simplicity.

The comfortable Close bench can be expanded from a two-seater sofa to the Connected Close bench, where a length of 426 centimeters can be reached to seat approximately 8 people. Due to the wide range of options, the bench can be placed used in the dining and living room, or an eye-catcher in business areas such as offices, lounges or restaurants.

The seat of the bench is divided into two parts, which allows the choice for a uni or duo upholstery in combination with a wooden frame.


Essenza bench

The Essenza bench is specially designed in combination with the elegant Essenza table. Did you know that the Essenza was Arco's first solid wood table? The collection was introduced at the end of the nineties to give a desired solid wood table a new design language in all its simplicity but with special design and craftsman details.
In both the table and the wooden dining bench, materials have been used efficiently and responsibly. The solid wood dining room bench is available in both oak and walnut, with a minimum length of 100 cm and a maximum length of 220 cm.


Base bench

A sturdy Base bench has been designed to be combined with the Base table. The Base collection is made of solid wood with a concrete base - durable materials that can withstand rough handling. The entire Base collection is part of our Local Wood collection. A collection made from Local Wood, wood from our factory in Winterswijk.
