This oil painting gave us a jumping off point for my client, Carolyn's new kitchen banquette.
The table and chairs are from Design Within Reach. The bench seat is covered in Perennials Tisket Tasket in Sea Salt (bring on the food spills--who cares).
Pottery Barn makes the black wooden tray. It was on sale recently in the store. The damask pillow fabric is by Ralph Lauren. The dot linen (Knot Along Iris by Robert Allen) reverses to the Kravet stripe on the other side.
It's a good idea to sometimes fill in with less expensive pillows like the white ones from Pottery Barn. Here you can see Carolyn has set the table for a little dinner party.
This is my favorite place to "chill" at Debbie's house...
And I love Clair's custom banquette at her beach condo.
Other cozy spots...
I highly recommend a banquet in a kitchen if it works in the space!
One more thing... my good friend is anticipating the birth of her first grandchild.Isn't this a cute photo?
