Create a rustic dining experience in your dining room or kitchen using an oak bench from Crate and Barrel. Adding dining benches creates an intimate table setting and also allows additional seating compared to standard dining chairs. Our live edge oak bench adds woodsy charm to a table with sides that look like the raw wood. Our Big Sur bench collection highlights the trees’ heartwood inner rings with bold, chunky design that is available in multiple finishes. Try pairing dining chairs on the ends of the table with benches on the side for a varied look. You can also try using one of our oak benches in an entryway or hallway for storage, or in a bedroom at the foot of the bed.
