Being Banquette

I have decided. A breakfast nook/area is a must for me. While I have a fancy schmancy dining room it hardly ever gets used. Honest. It becomes the dumping ground for mail, bags, jackets and dog treats. Isn't that tragic? It is gorg but just doesn't suit the everyday, every meal use that I am looking for. Enter the banquette. I mean what is not to love? Multiple person seating while still having a fabulous furniture piece in the kitchen. Who would have ever thought? That is my favorite part about the banquette. It is functional but also incredibly stylish. Get it in any size and any shape. 

Whatcha think? I plan on pairing it with a medium sized table and maybe two wishbone chairs. Can I get a witness? XOXO

  3. I love these with a round table but I doubt it will happen in my life of 5 kids. I love a camel back settee with a tulip table.

  4. I've been trying to convince my sister to go in this direction. I can't do it in my home, so I'm selfishly pushing her to do it so I can put one into action:) That kelly green above... perfection!

  6. Those are so lovely! We love our banquette! The smartest thing we did was to upholster it with Sunbrella material. That way those grubby little hands can get it dirty and it washes right off!

  7. I have windows in the way. I love this look. Feels like a booth, and I always like to sit in a booth.

  11. I'm living in a little first apartment with my husband and we just got a new table for each other for Christmas and we don't use it either! Only occasionally on the weekends if we cook together, otherwise I usually eat sitting on the living room floor and he eats while standing. We'll definitely need an informal eating space when we move to a large home!
