When I start a new project and learn that there is an opportunity to use a banquette or cleverly placed settee in the Dining Room or Kitchen it just warms my heart. When the client agrees to go with that plan, I couldn’t be more excited. Why? Well, whether modern or casual, formal or not it just looks amazing, simple as that. There’s something about creating that special space that feels warmer, more personal even, when it’s not just simply a table surrounded by a slew of chairs. Dinner parties feel fancier and snuggling in with the paper and a cup of coffee suddenly feels special.
Here are some of my faves.
