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 cozying up together. (Mark Cutler posted about banquettes a while ago here as well so have a look.)

Wow, I have that same picture of the Wilson & Associates banquette on my buletin board and also pictures of Vicente Wolf’s banquettes…. he is the “King of Banquettes”. I am just in the proces of having a banquette made for my new dining room. It is going to be 7′ long.
Will post a picture to my blog when it is all set up. http://patriciagrayinc.blogspot.com/
