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.
When you are shopping for new furniture for your home it is important to think about what the furniture will be used for and just who will be using it. This is especially true when you are planning to buy a bench specifically used for the dining room. Some of your guests may be uncomfortable using a backless bench to eat a meal at. Think about the guests who will be sitting there and ask yourself if you would ask them to eat on a stool. If you would not, then maybe a backless bench will not work either.
Finally, if you put a premium on storage, consider getting a chest bench with built-in storage. These work best in a kitchen nook where the bench itself doesn't need to be moved since it can get heavy when filled. This is a great place to store your linens, seasonal kitchen décor or serving ware, holiday plates, candles and other things that you don't always need, but need nearby.
