Bench Seating for Large Group Dining

As we looked for creative ways to seat more of our growing family (grandchildren) for meals when we all gather, we were pleased to find easy-to-use-and-store benches, Titus2’s Amazon affiliate link–see our privacy policy. (NOTE: We purchased two of the single-units because the double-pack wasn’t an option then.)

We started out looking for picnic table benches, knowing that a bench would hold more children than chairs that would take up a similar amount of space. However, picnic table benches are not as versatile as these benches are. Because these benches collapse, they store in a small space, and they are lightweight. They have a nice carry handle and set up quickly.

We purchased two of the benches before Christmas, and we are very pleased with them. We planned to use them when we needed to set up a second table for seating, but have also been using them when we only have one very full table. Two benches are much less work to set up than carrying six or eight chairs from the basement to the main floor and then back downstairs again.

Trusting in Jesus,

What could be better? They are compact and don’t take up much space in a closet!
Or here, you can see, next to an upright freezer, they don’t take much space.

“Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in
Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us
in every place” (2 Corinthians 2:14).

  1. That is a incredibly idea!!! We have a small house so the last thing I want to do is figure out where to store extra chairs. Thanks for the great idea!

  2. I love it that you share your cool finds!! I am so NOT a shopper and appreciate your trusted advice!! Thank you!!

  3. I have this brand of folding, store-away tables, and I had no idea they also offered these amazing, space-saving benches! I echo another poster above; I’m so thankful for the things you share. Thank you!

    1. We didn’t know the benches were available either until we had the need, thought of picnic benches, and started looking. We love how practical these benches are, light weight to carry around, easy to set up, collapse, and store.

  4. How useful! I think I will buy two for my mother-in-law as a gift. She likes to host the extended family and she will find these very pratical.

    How is Anna Marie recovering from her recent surgery? We pray for her and I check daily for updates.

    “The LORD protects and preserves them— they are counted among the blessed in the land – he does not give them over to the desire of their foes. The LORD sustains them on their sickbed and restores them from their bed of illness.” ~ Psalms 41:2-3

  5. Had no idea they had fold-away bench seating!!!! This is such a great idea. Bench seating definitely maximizes your space!
