When going out to a restaurant, I would assume that most diners prefer to sit in a booth. For starters it can be more comfortable and its usually more private and sound proof than some of the tables and chairs strewn about the floorplan. Well at home, the banquette look can be just as functional. It not only can save space but can be an area for extra storage under the seats. And unlike a bunch of chairs that can sometime look visually broken up and messy, the banquette creates a visually seamless line and can also be a great space divider for small apartments.
I'd give it a go, would you?
