More and more you're starting to see benches as part of thoughtful, intelligent kitchen designs. Once totally out of fashion with homeowners who wanted tables and chairs instead, an indoor bench is now chic and stylish. You'll find lots of tables being marketed with an indoor bench these days, whether it's a single bench to go along one side or two benches, one for each side. Chairs on the end are options either way to increase seating even more.
By definition, a table is a piece of furniture that has a flat surface (usually round or square) with attached legs that hold it upright. A table is used to hold a variety of objects ranging from food to boxes, merchandise, or an endless variety of things for various purposes. We are all familiar with the modern table and how they are used, but the question is can you define a table based on the types of chairs that is uses, if it even uses chairs at all. Many early table designs incorporated drawers. This was common as the table could be used for additional storage area and would not typically utilize chairs. Today, a table that uses drawers is commonly referred to as a desk, which may have one or more drawers in its base.
If you like the traditional style but you want a little bit more comfort for your guests you might want to opt for a padded bench. You can still keep it traditional with the rest of the bench being made out of wood, without a back of course, but you do not need your guests to be uncomfortable just to keep a specific style. Usually you can find the padded bench seats in multiple colors so you can match the décor and style already found in your dining area.
