I know I can’t be the only one that always quickly says, “booth,” when the hostess asks if my friends and I have a preference on where we want to sit at our favorite restaurant. There is something about sliding into this comfortable and intimate space in such a busy restaurant that has always been appealing to me. The idea of a banquette is one that is so versatile, especially when used in a home. This customizable piece can easily add extra seating and a pop of color to the space, yet provides a comfortable retreat in the busyness that comes with being adjoined to the kitchen. Below is a variety of ways that we’ve incorporated banquette seating into the homes of our clients.
