Reader requests - banquettes

Mary Anne of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia wrote us with a request for a post on banquette dining/eating areas. She found the post I did back in '07, but wanted some more ideas. So here are more banquette seating for your viewing pleasure.

Small dining spaces

Continuing on the "small" theme, today I thought I'd showcase some small dining spaces. My favourite small dining space includes a built-in banquette - preferably in a nook. LOVE THAT. I am determined to one day buy a house that perfectly suits such a thing. I would spend every waking moment there - eating, blogging, reading mags etc. There's a few banquettes below (and in this post), among other seating arrangements.

Banquettes

Banquettes are so much fun for use in casual dining spaces. I just adore them and the vibe they give off. I wish I had incorporated one into my dining room but sadly, it's too late. I noticed I have many pictures saved of dining spaces with banquettes, so I thought I'd post them in the hopes that this will inspire folks out there to think about a banquette as a seating solution for an eat-in-kitchen or dining room. They are fantastic space-savers too, and get everyone cosying up together. (Mark Cutler posted about banquettes a while ago here as well so have a look.)
