Linen Benches & Beam Seating

Linen benches is a term used for pieces of furniture that are used for storing bed and table linens, or it can refer to benches upholstered in linen. Linen upholstery is a fabric that blends style with functionality since it has design versatility and is durable and long-wearing.

Linen Benches Provide Plenty of Style Options
Linen is a textile made from the flax plant. The fibers are stronger than cotton. The natural colors of linen fabric are ivory, ecru, tan, and gray, but linen also accepts dyes well. The designs and colors that linen offers are endless, so a linen bench can provide a neutral accent or a focal color point for decor. Linen also goes well with any structural material, whether metal, wood, polymer, or wicker. That lets you use linen-upholstered benches to highlight any furniture style for all rooms of the home, whether traditional, contemporary, or transitional.

Linen Is a Smart Choice for Upholstering Benches
Benches provide not only side and accent seating, but also storage and other conveniences. When they're used in mudrooms, they often serve as a footrest for putting on or taking off shoes and boots. Linen is considered the strongest natural fiber available, so it can take a lot of everyday use. It's also breathable and moisture-wicking, so not only does it stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter, but it also takes a great deal of moisture to make it damp to the touch. Linen benches are also moth-resistant and bacteria-repellent. All of these properties make them sound furniture choices for any room of the home, but particularly mudrooms and three-season porches.

What Are Some of the Style Elements of Linen Upholstery?
The pliable natural fibers of linen mean the fabric can easily and effectively be tufted, pleated, shingled, braided, and fringed. Benches can have tacked, piped, or welted seams. In addition, linen upholstery for benches can be textured and layered, or it can be coarsely woven for a crisp, natural feel or tightly woven for a softer, more polished feel.

What Type of Linen Benches Are Available?
Benches with linen upholstery can be strictly accent, focal, or functional pieces, or all three. Some benches have refined, graceful lines with an open architectural style, with the bench seating resting on pedestal or braced supports. Other benches have a more robust structure and contain storage compartments in the form of under-seat space or front-panel drawers. Linen benches also include ottoman-style pieces with a densely padded seat that are covered fully in linen upholstery. Benches in linen upholstery come in virtually any structural style to accent other room furniture, wall coverings, or flooring.

Are There Sustainability Concerns About Linen?
The flax plant that produces linen textile has several other uses as a commodity, including food consumption, and virtually none of the plant is wasted. It is a robust farmable product that grows well even in poor soil, requiring very little watering and needing far fewer pesticides than other crops. So not only do few concerns exist about the sustainability of the plant, but the plant also provides ecological benefits as well.
