Types of Antique Benches

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.
