I really like the benches or sofas that replace the chairs in the dining room. Within this concept we can find more rustic options such as the oak and walnut banks of the firm e15, perfect for gross and precious tables like the model Bigfoot. But banks can also be elegant and sophisticated like models Pathos by Antonio Citterio for Maxalto y Athos by Paolo Piva for B&B Italy.
I especially like the Febo sofa of Citterio resized for the dining area. For those who, like me, like long after-hours with coffee, desserts, cards and snacks, it seems like a perfect idea.
