I disagree

We're shopping for furniture for the new house so I've been following the latest home decor trends and such.... So what is up with BENCHES being all the rage?
They look cute, fine, but completely NOT functional. Like what happens if you ate so much that you just have to recline!???
This is clearly designed with skinny people in mind that don't plan on actually eating when they sit down for dinner.
Don't like..

maybe you put the bench against the wall and have chairs on the other side? that way you can put pillows on it and when you've eaten TOO much, you can just lie down right there!

No, I agree - I don't think it's practical. I like something for my back.

not the most comfortable seating if you have a long dinner with guests. :)

I agree, I just dont like the idea of having to hoist your leg over something to sit down and eat, and I need back support. Its very picnic at the park.

I'm totally with you on this one. Worry not, though - it's only fashion and it will soon go away.

Also you can't drink half as much sitting on a bench, a proper chair keeps you from falling a lot longer. The ideal of course being an armchair, that will keep you even after you pass out in most cases. :P
Jokes aside benches are not suited for long meals, too uncomfortable.

Hey Hello there

Just a post from someone surfing on the net! I have been reading your blog now for an hour and I really can't stop reading. I did the same when I lived in Dallas Texas. Keep my friend and family up to date with what I'm doing and...more how strange the American habits are! Basically it is normal for you...strange for me! I guess you have the same right?! Keep on writing... I will visit it once a while! Hope you have a good time in Holland/Amsterdam!
