I love banquette seating! A great breakfast nook/family dining option that just looks good in any kitchen. Especially in its own little nook with lots of light, and lift-up seats to store kitchen/dining linens.
Love the idea of backing up a banquette/kitchen table to one side of the kitchen island. This is the Siller/Hokanson house featured in Houston Luxe magazine. Thanks to Joni Webb of Cote de Texas for posting the picture!
