Welcome Home

The Modern Edit rounds up our 6 favourite hallway benches.

An entrance hall bench is an essential piece of furniture to help create an inviting and welcoming place to sit as you enter your home. Whether its purpose is to add invaluable storage or simply just a place to take off your shoes, we’ve selected our 6 favourite options to suit any style or budget. 

1. The Designer One

Available with or without a seat pad, this beautifully crafted bench has a sculpted top and would be the perfect place to perch in a long narrow hallway. 

2. The Rustic One

Natural design at its most authentic, this solid oak bench features the live edge of the wood to keep the look organic.

3. The Rattan One

Long bench with space for 3 to comfortably sit, this wood and rattan bench is available in a dark ebony or warm mid-century brown.  

4. The Scandi One

The subtly curved shape of this bench would look great in an entrance hall however there are also matching carver chairs available so that it can be used to create a relaxed, Scandi inspired dining area. Tacoma Dining Bench £399

5. The Storage One

Featuring a handy shelf for shoe storage, this minimal bamboo bench is not only affordable but also sustainable as bamboo is fast-growing and releases high levels of oxygen, which helps to rebalance the levels of carbon dioxide in our environment.

6. The Petite One

At only 30cm deep and 75cm long, this lovely timber bench would be ideal for a smaller, more compact hallway space.
