Our Standing Meditation Bench is perfect if you will be using the bench primarily in one place, like your own home. The bench has beautiful Alder hardwood legs fixed upright and attached directly to a birch playwood top, with a layer of foam and cotton batting underneath the cotton canvas or raw silk upholstery.

The angled legs generally provide the meditator with greater support for the back to stay straight while staying relaxed. However, some customers prefer a rounded leg which lets the meditator use the bench at whatever tilt they choose. The rounded leg option is only available on the folding benches. You also have the option of ordering an extra set of legs in order to try which style works best for you. We have a number of customers that order both in order to switch back and forth from time to time.
We generally recommend the cotton upholstery for its strength and durability. The beautiful raw silk upholstery gives the bench a softer, more "luxurious" feel. Silk has also been said to insulate the meditator from subtle energies from the Earth, helping the meditation stay focused and uplifted.
Generally our customers prefer the folding bench because of the convenience and portability it offers. The folding legs make it easy to slip the bench into a backpack and bring it to a group meditation or to simply tuck it into a closet when you're done meditating. While our folding meditation benches are stable and strong, some customers prefer our standing bench on which the legs don't move, adding an extra degree of stability.
If you're 5'10" or taller, we typically recommend the tall bench. The tall bench is also ideal for customers with knee problems, causing less compression as you're further off the ground. You can order an extra set of bench legs if you find that your bench's height needs adjustment. Extra bench leg sets are pre-drilled and simple to swap with old legs. Old legs can be returned for a refund of the purchase price.
