For fabric, we highly recommend that you go with an upholstery weight fabric instead of a lighter material that will have a tendency to stretch over time, wrinkle and even rip. Upholstery fabrics can be purchased in most fabric stores and come in all the popular colors, weaves and patterns so you can easily match the other décor and fabrics in your home.
If you use your table a lot for entertaining, you may want to go with a patterned fabric for your indoor bench. This will help cover up some of the smaller stains that may happen during meal time and save you a lot of time keeping the cushion clean. Of course, you can always add some Velcro or a zipper along one seam so that you can clean your cushion cover easily in the washing machine. Just be careful that you don't accidentally dry a material in the dryer that isn't pre-shrunk. Though clean, you may find that your cover suddenly doesn't fit on the foam pad any more.
If you have a nook in the kitchen or dining area, an indoor bench can be a great idea, especially if space is at a premium. You can keep the bench tucked up against the wall, saving space while still offering guests maximum seating during a dinner party. If space is really tight, considering going with individual stools that can serve as a bench. These have the added bonus of being able to slip right under the table when not in use.
