Everyone likes to gather in the kitchen and banquettes make it is everyone’s favorite spot. They are cozy, comfortable, and a good use of space!
This is an updated post for 2022 with fresh ideas including pedestal and trestle table sources. It is a good idea to have this type of table to make it easier to get in and out (rather than a four-legged table).
Free Standing Banquette
My friend, Debbie had her banquette custom built by Lee Industries. Since it’s freestanding, it can be moved if she wants to use this area differently, or if she moves.
We have this dining bench that serves as a banquette. I had it recovered in performance fabric but you can order it in performance fabric now.
Straight Built-in Banquettes
I love how this is built in an alcove. The design is by Molly Britt Design. Look at the little sconces…must look great at night. Photo By House Beautiful. With the stripes and vintage gallery wall…this is probably my favorite ever! So good.
For a Florida client, we used a performance fabric by Perennials on the back and an easy to clean faux leather on the seat of the banquette.
The chairs from Restoration Hardware are also in Perennials.

We used more performance fabric on the seat and back by Perennials.
