Dark wall, with dark wood furniture illuminated with warm lighting does not make the space seem narrow, as one would imagine, rather it makes the whole area appear quite warm and cozy. The black chairs complement the black wall, and the bench is definitely the center of attraction of this open dining space.
For a more interesting and unusual style of dining furniture, rustic bench seating should absolutely be considered, as it offers a beautifully unique aesthetic. Easy to combine with regular chairs, for a little diversity, bench seats are ideal for busy family homes, where the evening meal is considered to be a cherished moment of reflection and interaction. Children always enjoy a more fun style of furniture and with a bench seat, there's always room for one more guest.
