Antique benches look great in many rooms and are exceptionally functional. For example, an antique midcentury modern bench in your bedroom can transform that space into a peaceful reading nook.

Types of Antique Benches

Antique benches consist of various materials. Swedish antique benches often feature whitewashed wood and linen upholstery. On the other hand, French benches are often more elaborate, featuring intricate wood carvings and brighter colors.

While wood is a popular material for antique benches, other common materials include iron and concrete. If you’re looking for an outdoor antique bench for your backyard or courtyard, choose a durable material that can stand up to the elements. When choosing an antique bench for your home, think about what you’d like to use it for: as a decorative living room bench, a functional bench in the entryway, or more.
