Spanish translation:deuce = bar booth, two-person bench
Explanation:
That's what it looks like to me if Spanish has borrowed an English word (but I don't speak a word of Spanish):

36"H x 26"L Deuce Plain Back Restaurant Booth $225
- 36"H x 26"L Deuce 15"w Vertical Channel Back Restaurant Dining Booth $230
- 36"H x 26"L Deuce 7"w Vertical Channel Back Booth $245
- 36"H x 26"L Deuce 3 Horizontal Channel Back Booth $265
- 36"H x 26"L Deuce V-Shape Back Restaurant Booth $250

Presumably because "deuce" is restaurant jargon for two diners (so a two-seater booth/bench):
It's Friday night in a mythical restaurant, Quain's, and the joint is jumping! A party of six wants a reservation that will require you to put a two-top and a four-top together. You must decide whether to accommodate them, or hold those two tables open in hopes that a four and a deuce will want them … You turn down the reservation, (or try to steer them into a "down time"), because your records show that a party of six takes about one hour and a half to eat, while a deuce and a four only take about an hour each
