A bench is a long seat that can accommodate multiple people at the same time. Benches are most commonly made of wood, but they can also be made of metal, stone, or synthetic materials. Many benches have arm and back rests; others do not and can be sat on from either side. In American public spaces, benches are frequently donated by individuals or organizations, which are then commemorated on them, for example, with a small plaque. This is a common type of memorial to a deceased person (see memorial bench). Benches can be found both indoors and outdoors.
