A lesson in smart seating design from Shift Interiors.
Mix and match bench seating with dining chairs. Though this table may look tiny, the clever pairing of wishbone chairs with a built-in bench (which doubles as storage) allows for more seating space than meets the eye. “A round table controls traffic in a small space,” explains designer Jamie Deck, director of Shift Interiors. Up to four people can cozy up on the bench, and by adding a few more chairs along the curve of the table, you’ve got room for all your favourite dinner-party guests.
