I always gravitate towards a banquette or booth at a restaurant. There's something so cozy and intimate about them. Luckily I have the perfect spot in my kitchen for one but not necessarily the resources to buy what I envisage.
There are quite a few upholstered benches on the market, specifically the Harper Banquette from World Market and the Tribeca Banquette from Ballard Designs. But they're either too small, too bulky, or too expensive. I wanted a bench that would fill the entire corner but not take up too much space (contradictory I know).
Here are my inspiration photos.
Tufts!!! Am I crazy or what?
You can find the links to the above pictures here.
And this is where I'm at right now.
I'll post a tutorial and source list next week. Lots to share.
