The Beauty of Banquettes

 I love built-in banquette seating.  Not only does it save space, it can also provide a comfy alternative to most typical kitchen seats.   A banquette is an upholstered bench, and today I am showcasing my favorite banquettes in kitchen nooks.









Aren't they beautiful?  There is definitely a banquette in my dream kitchen...

  4. This is such a great idea that you do not see very often. I would always want to sit on the banquette seating. I am a booth girl after all :)

  5. I so wanted to do a banquette, but the hubs balked. He is now talking about how we should have gone with my original idea. I have a feeling I will be picking out fabric soon. Lovely finds.
