Banquettes have had a role in interior design for what seems like forever.
Think of the malt shops of the 40’s and 50’s and their bright red vinyl banquette seats.
Or, as a child, I remember going to fancy restaurants on special occasions with my parents and sitting on plush fabric banquettes. It felt so special and intimate.
Fortunately we still have them and they can be as simple or elegant as you wish.
They’re not only stylish, but incredibly functional. They offer more seating in places where chairs would be too bulky.
And they’re not only for dining. Banquettes can be used practically anywhere in your home. They’re terrific in a child’s space and exquisite in an elegant living room.
Banquettes offer storage opportunities which we never seem to have too much of.
And they’re cozy and make us feel protected. They encourage intimacy and rich conversation. Or, just a special place in which to read or dream.
Take a look at these examples. You may see an example that could work in your design and make your home even more special.

10. Banquettes have a friendly vibe.

Until next time…
Blessings from my home to yours,
Dedicated to helping you live your rooms—not the other way around
