I love this post! The one from Amie Weitzman and Metropolitan Home are brilliant. A very modern spin on a farm house classic. Now I just have to figure out how to get this in my house. 😉 Thanks for the eye candy!

All of these are wonderful, but that kitchen from Katie Ridder is so warm -love the floor and art as well as the banquette.

I love banquets. I actually often incorporate these, if the space can take it, in interior settings (for school).

i never met a banquette i didn’t like but i LOVE that octagonal table in the space by wendy flount. great round-up!

I love the banquets. "Turquoise" is probably my favorite, with the quaint setting and cozy atmosphere, but whenever they’re done well, banquets can be unique and add real character.

Mary Anne says:

Hi Kim,

Thanks so much for the great images! Most of these I haven’t seen – so I knew I could count on you for getting me some more banquette looks. I love the idea of eating near the kitchen as unfortunately it seems that our dining table area is always used for storing stuff and not eating on!

Thanks again,

Mary Anne 🙂
