Velvet Benches & Beam Seating

SORT BY:
Select the right velvet bench for your home or office, and make room for guests. Shorter benches work well for single or double seating, while long benches hold four, six, eight, 10, or more people. Staples® has a selection of benches that look attractive at home or in the office, so you can make a statement with your velvet furniture.

The Benefits of Choosing a Velvet Bench for Your Home or Business
Benches make room for multiple people to sit comfortably as they wait to meet with the CEO of a company, see a doctor, or for dinner at home. Velvet has a soft touch and beautiful sheen that stands out and looks luxurious. Available in multiple sizes, velvet benches stand between 18 and 20 inches high with a depth of 12 to 15 inches. Benches range from 48 inches long to those that are up to 7 or 8 feet long. Leave at least 18 to 24 inches per person to make sure they stay comfortable and have room to move around. Velvet comes in several styles, from crushed to smooth. It captures light, reflecting it as it moves over the surface, and perfectly shows off the shape of the furniture.

Selecting the Right Bench and Cushions
To make sure the cushions and bench you want work well in your space, measure the room and other furniture. If you get a bench that goes with a dining table, make sure there is at least 12 inches between the seat and table top. If the bench has arms, leave at least 7 inches between the arms and apron of the table. Remember to add in the height of the cushion when you calculate this number. Taller cushions may sink in, too, so take a measurement when someone is sitting on the cushion and when it is fully expanded. For kitchen spaces, choose velvet or velour cushions with stain-resistant treatments, so they're easier to clean and maintain. Velvet is dyed after being woven, and the colors are rich thanks to the absorbent fabric. It is dense and thick, making it suitable for furniture that sees plenty of use.

What Is the Difference Between Velvet and Velour?
Velvet is a smooth, shiny material. The woven fabric is made with small loops that all rotate and face the same direction, giving the material its luster. Velvet has a thicker feel than velour and holds its shape. Cotton, silk, and other fibers are used to make velvet. If you want a knit fabric with stretch, velour is a good choice. Each of the little loops used in the material's weave has its ends cut off, making it less shiny than velvet.

What Materials Are Bench Bases Made With?
Bench bases, or frames, come in a variety of materials. The frames of upholstered benches are mostly made with wood. The wood base is easy to work, and the fabric is simply tacked into place. Some bench bases do come in metal and have clamps to hold the upholstery in position permanently. For benches without permanent cushions, bases come in a number of styles and shapes. Molded plastic, for example, can be rounded, oval, square, or rectangular.

What Kinds of Velvet Are There?
Several velvet varieties exist, including linen velvet, which has thin striations and a nap. Silk velvet has the softest touch. It has a high sheen, making it look luxurious. Comparably, mohair velvet has a durable structure and subtle sheen. Printed velvet includes any velvet printed with color or designs. Some come in paisley, animal prints, and other popular patterns.
