I found these photos a couple of years ago when I was searching for ideas for a tattoo as a tribute to my grandmother. I’ve been thinking about getting another tattoo…and these tattoos by Nick Baxter suddenly popped into my head (although I would not get chairs tattooed on me – too weird). These are so well done it’s incredible. The proud owner of these tattoos is a furniture design major. Go figure.

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.)
