The Mini Scatola is a bench in a box that transforms and expands to accommodate 5 seats at your preferred table setting. Extremely compact and ingenious as two bench boxes can fit under our console dinner tables such as the Junior Giant, Titan or Expanda table. Use on its own or pair with your own table. Easy to unfold, pack up and stow away with minimal impact to space, in any type of room configuration. Comfortable padding on the seat for dining purposes or hosting an impromptu cooking class or book club gathering.  We also have wood versions without pads for an alternate style. They adapt nicely as side tables – simply place a tray on top of the padded seats (if you want to balance drinking glasses!). The Mini Scatola is a wonderful single entry way chair and/or a versatile 5 seater bench. Build this to size by adding in as few as one seat extensions, or as many as 5.

Design and quality

I’ve purchased the box coffee table and the mini bench. They are well built, great design and most importantly space saving. I’m totally satisfied.

Scatola Benches perfect with Jr Giant Revolution table

Great product, terrific staff, and an awesome combination of the Mini Scatola benches with the Jr. Giant Revolution table. I have a small living space which made the choice to use Expand Furniture easy. The table and benches fit perfect in my alcove when collapsed, how I use it most, and expand easily to accomodate 10 comfortably, 12 cozily, and I'm sure I could get 4 more in if needed. Benches open and close easily and are sturdy. I don't feel like they are going to bend or warp after repeated use like other adjustable furniture I've seen. TIP: there is one bench seat that must be used every time regardless of the number of seat you use. I recommend always putting this seat away last and in the middle. You will know where it is and it is easiest to remove.

Clever design

Hard to expand and to open when first setting it up.
