Banquettes are a designers dream. They can be configured into any awkward corner or space and make such a seating impact. If you've been struggling with a funky space in your kitchen/dining area think about a banquette. They can be creative and functional and the extra storage you may acquire in the seat could be really helpful if you've got a small space.
I have a client who is having a banquette put into her kitchen. My contractor made the bench and the frame for the backing. I'll send pictures soon. Were selecting the fabric this weekend. It's going to look so cool!
