Looking for French country benches for your farmhouse home that belongs in the French countryside? Benches can be used in a variety of locations throughout your home. You can use a bench in the dining room as a long seat, at the end of the bed in your bedroom, at the entryway of your home, or in a long hallway that feels empty. You can even use one as a coffee table in your living room if you feel like getting creative. There are so many great uses for benches, and that’s what makes these simple pieces of furniture so versatile!
French Country Benches
So what does a French country style bench look like? Well, the most typical examples are made from natural, solid wood. The wood is often carved or curved in a feminine form, as many French Country style pieces of furniture are. From there, the bench seat is often upholstered in beige, gray, or cream colored fabric. The plush cushion is sometimes tufted, too which gives it an extra boost of charm.
