    I've seen a similar chandelier at Restoration Hardware (look online) for much less.

    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.

    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.

    Thank you for your feedback Gibher. We actually love the high back of this dramatic dining bench but appreciate the honesty.

    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.

    Rachel Reider utilized a settee in a dining room to create an inviting and relaxed feel in the space.

    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.

    Add texture. There’s a nice contrast between these rattan chairs and this elegantly upholstered dining settee.Upholstery professionals give furniture a second life

    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.

    For a great guide to choosing the right sized light for a dining room, look at this ideabook from Lettered Cottage.

    Like the idea of the sofa type seating as opposed to a bench with no back. I don’t like the style of the one in the picture though

    Kristen Marshall added this to Kitchen/Office/MiscJun 4, 2019

    maybe something like this style??

    This picture is showing Proportion/Scale because of the the long chair on the left side of the table is bigger then the table and the chairs and the chairs itself are the same size and level as the table almost. What I like about this picture is how it is set up different and how they have the chandelier hanging over the table and I like the the windows.
