Dining Banquettes

Whenever we go out to eat we like to sit at a table with a banquette. It is such a cozy and relaxing way to eat. It gives you a close knit feeling and is very french in style. It can give versatility and elegance to a room. A dining room can have a lot of originality or personal style with a banquette and are very helpful in small spaces. It can double the seating capacity and there is always extra room for one more person. Here are some very beautiful examples of dining with a banquette.

I love this post! (It's funny we were on the same wavelength today!). I would love to add one of these to my kitchen one day.

Love the look of banquette-style seating, especially in kitchens. It's visually pleasing and makes the best use of space.

I never really thought about why I liked them so much...but you're totally onto something when you say it's cozy. That's it!! I love this great collection of images!

I love a banquette table; we fought to have those at our wedding reception for that very reason. They lend themselves to such cozy seating. We also loved the impact they make on a room. Love it!

I am a big fan of banquettes. I would say it's one of my favorite things in design. Beautiful images.
