Outlet under bench, is that to code?

We'd like to put a built-in bench in the corner under the windows in the attached picture. There's a couple of electrical outlets there. The top of the bench would be above the outlets. What code requirements do I need to be aware of? We could leave the front of the bench open if need be. Your thoughts are appreciated.

Code says that they need to be accessible for service.
As long as you can get to them after the bench is built..... they are ok.
