How to Style Benches; Hallway & Entrance Way
Replica Furniture knows that when working with an vastly open space such as an entrance way or hallway, styling can be challenging. There is little space to work with yet so much at the same time. Placing a bench in a hallway or entrance way makes the job of separating or filling open spaces much easier. Pictured above, the Replica J83B Bench Seat by Jorgen Baekmark is styled to fill the awkward open space beneath artwork. Here it is clear how implementing a bench in an open space can not only elevate the look of the room but also add functionality and convenience.
The picture above demonstrates another prime example of how the Replica J83B Bench Seat by Jorgen Baekmark can be successful in filling a previously overlooked space. Here, Replica Furniture‘s use of soft rattan and overall lightness of the Solid Ash Wood creates an understated and effective look. This allows the space to be filled without drawing too much attention or interrupting the pre-set style. Furthermore, this piece has been thoughtfully styled close by a staircase of similar shaded wood. In turn, creating a great sense of cohesion without taking away from the focal point of the room.

Bench seating is becoming increasingly more common as an alternate seating option around the typical dining table. Styling benches or a singular bench to accompany your dining table is a simple way to modernize your entire space.

The option to organize your table with benching exclusive to one side and chairs on the opposing side similarly creates this effect.
