Waiting Room Benches

Updated

While waiting room benches are undeniably functional and should prioritize comfort, they have another secret power: they can help you make a good first impression and convey the right vibe before your customers or clients have even seen your actual studio or office. Whether you’re after some waiting room seating that inspires a sense of coziness, elegance, or something else entirely, you’re guaranteed to find it in the premium selection compiled by our interior design experts.

Waiting room bench with back

Waiting room bench with back

This 52.36” waiting room bench relies on a wooden design in a versatile natural hue, an eye-catching low back in woven rattan, and a polyester cushion that will allow you to take comfort to the next level for your visitors.

Designer Advice:

We mainly recommend designs with a back if your waiting room is fairly large. They’re also more comfortable than backless models: while it doesn’t matter that much if people are only expected to sit down on them for a few minutes, you should definitely consider them if longer waiting times are involved.

Backless waiting room bench seating

Backless waiting room bench seating

Just under 60” in length, this waiting room bench combines sleek lines and retro elements that make it a good match in both modern and contemporary settings. The two black or brown cushions can be placed in a balanced or asymmetrical fashion.

Designer Advice:

Backless designs are the most popular option for waiting room benches: by removing the backrest, they result in an airier feel and cleaner visual flow. This trick will create a much welcome illusion of space in smaller waiting rooms. Plus, you won’t need to worry about the back getting in the way of your windows or other wall elements.
