I have a table with legs like this one from Crate and Barrel. It is 65 inches long. I would love to do a settee like this with it but I'm not sure what size to get. In order for it to fit under the table a bit it can only be 55 inches. This one seems a bit longer than the inside of the legs. I'm wondering when you are eating at it if you would be close enough to the table. because it is longer than the inside area between the legs? In other words, if I did it this way the guests would most likely have to sit forward and wouldn't be able to lean back. You normally scoot your dining chair in when you eat. My only other idea might be to put pillows along the back? Your suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Would you ever use two benchs, one on either side of the dining table?

I suppose it depends on the circumstance but for the most part we like only one bench so that it doesn't look too heavy or closed in.

34 to 36 inches above the table. Make sure it isn't blocking something you want seen.

Branches are a fantastic way to bring in a natural and sculptural element into any room. And the best thing is that they're relatively inexpensive! Most florists and local craft stores sell branches, but my recommendation would be to check online (try save-on-crafts.com). Depending on the type of branches you use, you can really create a one-of-a-kind look. Some of the most popular: Manzanita branches, Curly Willows, Curly Tings, Birch, Curly Asian Mulberry and Japanese Mitsumata.

I need to know the seat height. - I need 10 rattan chairs but the seat height must be minimum of 49cm. I like this particular one as I dont want anything which reclines very much or which looks too heavy. So, could you tell me the seat height of this chair and maybe suggest any other of the correct height. Thanks in anticipation.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

For a great guide to choosing the right sized light for a dining room, look at this ideabook from Lettered Cottage.
Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to Design Talk: What is a Settee?
One of my favorite uses of a settee has to be in a dining space. I love the inspiration behind a conventional booth transformed to function in a residential breakfast nook.
Becky Harris added this to Cozy Up to a Loveseat at the Table
Add texture. There's a nice contrast between these rattan chairs and this elegantly upholstered dining settee.
Natalie Myers added this to Pick the Right Dining Chair
You: Never know how many people are coming for dinnerYour seating: The cushioned benchSome people find a hard wood bench unforgiving, so look at cushioned benches or banquette seating for increased comfort. Having a cushioned bench along one wall and regular chairs on the other side of a table creates an eye-catching composition. Combined with an extending table, you're ready for any size dinner party.
Jace Interiors & CreateGirl Blog added this to Guest Picks: Settees for Every Room and Style
Rachel Reider utilized a settee in a dining room to create an inviting and relaxed feel in the space.
