Pieces of Nordic Happiness

Carl Hansen & Søn | Benches

Carl Hansen & Søn is a family-run Danish company specialising in classic wooden furniture. The story of Carl Hansen & Søn dates back to 1908 when Danish cabinetmaker Carl Hansen established a small furniture workshop on the island of Funen. Since the beginning, the finest Danish craftsmanship and collaborations with skilful designers have been the company's two main principles. Carl Hansen & Søn is known especially for a long-term relationship with Hans J. Wegner, the designer of the iconic Wishbone chair, as well as collaborations with other mid-century Danish designers, such as Arne Jacobsen, Børge Mogensen, Ole Wanscher and Kaare Klint. Besides preserving Danish design classics, Carl Hansen & Søn also works with interesting contemporary designers.

Elegant Scandinavian benches for every room and style

A bench is a great, multifunctional furniture piece that can function in a range of uses. Entryway benches and mudroom benches help you to dress your shoes and clothes, and storage benches and shoe storage benches are a great way to save space in the hallway. A dining bench or breakfast nook bench is an efficient space-saver in the kitchen or dining room, as you can easily squeeze in one more guest if needed. Besides seating, benches can also be used as low side tables for example in the living room or end of the bed. If you're looking for a bench suitable for outdoor use, take a look at our selection of outdoor chairs and benches.

Wood is the most traditional material of Scandinavian benches, and wooden benches haven't lost their popularity. Our selection is filled with many beautiful, handmade wooden benches in both rustic and modern style. We also have metal benches with references to industrial design, as well as benches combining wood and metal. The classic colours of Scandinavian benches include white, black and natural wood, but you can also add a pop of colour to your home with a yellow, red of blue bench. Most benches come without cushions, but seat cushions and decorative cushions are a great way to give a bit of softness to your bench.

Finnish Design Shop's handpicked selection features carefully crafted benches from the top of Scandinavian design, including the classic Aalto benches by Artek, wooden mid-century benches by FDB Møbler and modern, minimalist Scandinavian benches by Hay and Muuto. Whether you're looking for a dining bench, entryway bench, storage bench or end of bed bench, we've got what you need. Discover our selection and choose your favourite bench!
