I have long been obsessed with having a corner banquette in my kitchen. I adore the idea of being able to sit and read the paper with coffee in a comfy spot or having friends enjoy a glass of wine in the same room while I cook (or open more wine and place a delivery order, rather).

Available in a variety of fabrics and various sizes, you can just slide this bad boy into a corner, add a pedestal table (I prefer a Tulip table) and voila- no need to call a finish carpenter to build one in for you!
