Benches are long seats designed to seat multiple people simultaneously. The most basic bench is one without a back, but common benches seen in public areas and parks usually have arm and back rests. Benches are versatile pieces of furniture and may be used in both outdoor or indoor environments. Originally made of wood, benches today are made from a range of materials that include metal, concrete, stone, and plastics.

How tall are benches?

The height of a bench is typically between 18 and 20 inches (46-51 cm). Although this is the average range, the height of a bench is dependent on its use.

How deep are benches?

Benches can have a depth anywhere from 15-20 inches (38-51 cm), although the typical bench used for dining is considered to be around 17 ½ inches (44 cm). A depth (or width) past 20 inches (51 cm) will not be as comfortable for the average person to sit on.

How long are benches?

On average, bench length can range from 42 and 60 inches (107-152 cm). A bench within the 42 to 50 inch (127 cm) range is able to seat two people.

Palissade Dining Bench
Front elevation drawing of a man sitting on the Palissade Dining Bench

Upon the unusual bending curves and rounded corners, the Bouroullec brothers designed the Palissade Dining Bench to perform along with nature. Its curved back support naturally flows into the seat and back down into the frame of the bench to make all one flawless piece. With or without cushions, this bench can perform anywhere outdoors.

The Palissade Dining Bench has an overall height of 31.5” (80 cm), length of 50.5” (128 cm), depth of 27.75” (70.5 cm), and seat height of 17.75" (45 cm).

Nelson Platform Bench
Drawing of a woman sitting on the Nelson Platform bench for scale comparison

The Nelson Platform Bench is a multi-functional rectangular midcentury bench that can be used as seating, as a table, or a platform base as necessary. Designed by George Nelson in 1946, the Nelson Platform Bench is constructed using finger-jointed solid maple or walnut connections for additional strength. A design variation with metal legs is also available.

The Nelson Platform Bench is set on trapezoidal legs and comes in three lengths: a short bench of 48” (121.9 cm), mid-sized at 60” (152.4 cm), and a long length of 72” (182.9 cm). The bench has a height of 14” (35.6 cm) with a depth of 18.5” (47 cm).
