We've presented some of our favorite benches in the past— Wooden Benches with Spindle Backs  and  Backless Wooden Dining Benches —but we have yet to source another notable subset: backed wooden benches with a modern profile. Here are ten of our favorite options to consider for dining tables and hallways, and a few for outdoors, too. Above: Børge Mogensen's  3171 Bench  comes in 19 different wood and tanned leather combinations; $4,931 from the Danish Design Store. It's also at Mjölk in Toronto for $2,975 CAD. Above: The  Corner Bench  by Birgit Gämmerler is an ergonomic design available in solid beech, maple, oak, American cherry, and American or European walnut. Contact Suite New York for pricing and more information. Above: CB2's  Principle Bench  has a raw steel frame and a seat and back of solid acacia wood with a matte light brown stain; $499. Above: From Richard Ostell, the  Series 1 Bench  is a minimalist design that makes use of negative space. Ostell says he aimed for "a quiet simplicity, focused on proportions and balance." H andmade in Grand Rapids, Michigan, it's  $3,200. For more see our post,  Slow Design from Richard Ostell  and  A Quiet Man: At Home with a NY Designer . Above: The Moooi  AVL Three-Seat Shaker Bench  is approximately 94 inches long and is marked down from  € 1,750 to €875 from  Canoof in Amsterdam . Above: The Jean Prouvé Marcoule Bench was designed in 1955 and has a basalt powder-coated tubular and moulded sheet steel frame with a seat and back of oiled oak. Available through the  Patrick Seguin  showroom,  Philips  auction house, and as a special edition via  Nest  in the UK. Above: The Los Garden Bench by Meier/Ferrer is made of teak and versatile for both indoor and outdoor use. Contact  Derring Hall  for pricing and availability. Above: Jasper Morrison's  Botan Bench , made in Japan by Maruni, was originally created for his own house. Equally suited for indoor and outdoor use, it's available in two sizes, with four or six legs. The six-legged version, shown here, is $3,825 CAD from Mjölk in Toronto. Above: Designed by Scott Klinker of Context Furniture, the Truss Museum Bench is made from birch multi-ply and colored laminate (available in white, gray, red, and brown). It's 60 inches long and is $515 from Design Public. Above: From Another Country, the  Bench One Back  has the company's signature peg detail on the backrest and turned legs that attach with screws. It's available in four sizes; the 1.4-meter bench is £815. Go to Another Country Series One Furniture to see  a version of the bench that's backless and shallower. Above: Designed by Catharina Lorenz, the  Sit Bank  is made from sustainably harvested solid wood (available in beech, ash, oak, maple, American cherry, American walnut, or European walnut).
