One of the places in our home that we enjoy the most is our banquette in the kitchen. We surf the web, color with Lucas, eat, have our coffee in the morning, you name it. I think a banquette is one of he most functional features anyone can incorporate in their home. Not only does it offer a lot more space for seating than individual chairs but it also instantly warms up any space. All these images are absolutely beautiful but my favorite is the very first one because of all those slick antique-looking iron windows, the adorable French mattress (a post coming up on this by the way), and the accessibility to the banquette itself. I just love it. Barry Dixon's space, last image, is quite interesting with the church-looking banquette and all the use of global chic accessories in a very personalized way. Enjoy!
