I could handle it...

I'm a sucker for banquettes, and this one is lovely, indeed...
But, perhaps I could take that bench and recover it in this...

Then, surround the table with an assortment of these...There. My little kitchen Casbah.

Oh boy... I like both options! I am working on a "Banquette"-ish dining room right now in my own house... I'll have to post pictures soon!

Love your vision Alison and I wish I was more open to prints...maybe in 2010 I'll finally get there.

Oh I just love that little banquette and that fabric choice is awesome, you cant go wrong with that pattern in any color!

my favorite and my best said...

works for me! i was in anthropologie today trying on dresses and in their dressing room was THE most awesome high back tufted settee i have ever seen. i couldn't bring myself to look at the price though.

That would be so, so, SO cool. I love that zig zag print, especially in the navy and orange colorways and either would look amazing with that chair.

I love your fabrics!! I am seeing more in magazines where regular old couches are being pulled up to the table with chairs. It looks fabulous!!

I love how sophisticated yet intimate and charming this is. I could see myself having a sunday brunch or a tea party with my neice, absolutely adorable...and now I want one!

Ok, I think I might love the pendant in that picture. Do you by any chance know who makes that?

Love the chairs, by the way.

Your little kitchen casbah looks like heaven to me! Hope all is well!

Minnie said...

Ah, I'm still smarting over a banquette I saw on Craigslist two years ago! I still think about how much more cozy my dining area would be. I love your "Kitchen Casbah" idea. Would definitely be great for dinner parties. Happy New Year!
