A top selection of benches
Our renowned brand-name labels know how to skilfully combine design, comfort and functionality to make a high-quality product. Just take a look at the beautifully designed models in the AmbienteDirect online shop for proof. But where should you put these space-saving all-rounders and which bench is best suited to your personal living style?
Let’s start in the entrance area: a narrow bench makes perfect sense here. After all, the hall is often an area with very little free space against the walls. It’s therefore perfectly fine to dispense with the backrest on your bench, and it shouldn’t be too long, either. Try the storage benches from Müller Small Living for an innovative solution. They are either open underneath the seat or fitted with a drawer so that you can easily store objects in it. Add some soft seat cushions and pads and you’ve got a comfortable seat for putting on or taking off your shoes. Thanks to the clear style and discreet design, the shoe bench can be integrated into many different furnishing styles.
Living room and dining room
A comfortable bench for shared meals with friends or family is a must here. There is enough room for several people, so there’s nothing to stop you spending a few hours socialising over some tasty snacks and drinks. An upholstered bench with a backrest is perfect for use in the dining room – the design company Conmoto, among others, offers functional models like this. The label’s products are suitable for indoors and outdoors, and some are even available in handy sets together with a matching dining table. Corner benches are real space wonders and create plenty of seating space even in the smallest rooms.
Pretty chest benches are usually found at the foot of the bed, offering both a flat surface and additional storage space inside. The bench can also blend in seamlessly with the colour and design of the bedroom furniture. Or you can create striking contrasts with a deliberate break in style.
You can buy child-friendly furniture made of beech or ash wood for your children at AmbienteDirect. Manufacturers such as Jan Kurtz or ferm LVIVING create products that your little ones can use as a table and/or bench. Thanks to their friendly charm, the timelessly beautiful children’s benches are real winners and will fit in perfectly in both girls’ and boys’ rooms.
Whether you’re looking for a pretty palisade bench – for example from the designer duo Erwan and Ronan Bouroullec – or a classic wooden bench with a back and armrests, garden benches made of wood, metal or plastic make particularly popular outdoor furniture. If you like playful seats with intricate frames, you’ll love the charming and easy-care metal benches from the French brand label Fermob. They also have a weatherproof finish, meaning they are resistant to moisture and high levels of sunlight, and they can easily spend the summer season outside. Do you prefer a more rustic, country-house style? Then the beautiful wooden benches from Skagerak are perfect for you. Precious teak, cedar and oak give your patio or garden an inviting feel. These woods also guarantee durability and have a high proportion of natural oil to protect against fungal and mould infestations. For striking accents in the garden, add our colourful outdoor seat cushions and pads.
