When dining out, many will invariably request a booth over a table for the simple comfort.  Why not have that comfort when dining at home?  Banquette seating in the kitchen or dining room provides a great place for dining and other family activities.  Banquettes can be built-in or purchased as a piece of furniture to add to your dining space.

Banquette seating changes a space, giving it softness and a touch of luxurious comfort.  In the kitchen, a built-in banquette is perfect for sharing a meal, playing games or even doing homework.  Built within a window, a banquette is a beautiful addition to a kitchen eating nook.

A banquette seating area placed on the opposite side of a kitchen island is a great way to expand the space and provide a convenient spot for dining.  This style of seating adds charm and comfort to the kitchen, welcoming family and guests to linger.
