We do it. We know you do too. You get to a restaurant and there are a couple chairs on one side and a big, cushy, cozy booth on the other.
If you’re with older friends or relatives, bosses etc. you probably selflessly take the chair side, feeling like a martyr the entire time as you do.
If you’re with your kids or husband or maybe even your best friend, there’s probably a bit of fighting over the good side that ensues. At least, there is in our world.
So why relegate the squishy, comfy, cozy booth side to restaurants when you can have one in the privacy of your own home?
All of these gorgeous banquettes make us think that this is really the best idea.
And who cares if you sit four wide in the privacy of your own home? We’re not judging.
An awkward corner becomes a fabulous reading area with the addition of built-in seating,
And a simple breakfast becomes an event.
We love the space-saving abilities of the banquette, and how it can be built straight across, in an L-shape, a U… You get the idea.
It even has the power to transform a charming breakfast area into a multipurpose space, perfect for reading, crafts or anything else your family needs!
Are you a fan of the banquette? Do you have one in your home?
Thanks so much for stopping by Design Chic today! We always love it when you do!
