things I’m loving: banquettes

Banquettes aren’t anything new, and from a DIY perspective, instructions on adding them to your home at all over the place. I recently saw a house for sale that had a built-in banquette in a beautiful cognac leather, with amazing tufting and, ever since, I’ve been lusting after them.

The best banquettes I’ve seen are primarily in restaurants, like this:

That avocado green has my heart bursting. The tufting is not your typical diamond or square pattern, which really elevates the height of the booth.

banquette2

More green, except this time closer to a jade green.

Banquettes offer a beautiful backdrop for your eating space. They can easily be the focal point or blend in to their surroundings. With details like this:
