Benches

Illustration of a man sitting on a long bench

Benches are long seats designed to sit multiple people simultaneously. The most basic bench is one without a back, but common benches seen in public areas and parks usually have arm and back rests. Benches are versatile pieces of furniture and may be used in both outdoor or indoor environments. Originally made of wood, benches today are made from a range of materials that include metal, concrete, stone, and plastics.
