Dinner at the Home of Good Friends...

You know how nice it is to go to good friend's homes, 
feel completely at ease, everyone's happy...
I have good friends like this, in particular they both love to cook,
and while they are busily preparing dinner, everyone sits around in
their very homey wonderful kitchen, because they have a banquette.

They have a huge commercial kitchen, with like a 10-burner Viking
range, a big island with pots hanging, but what makes it all so great is
that comfy banquette where we all gather.
 We look at scrapbooks of travels, tell stories,
do impersonations of our friends, and drink lots of good wine.

I've always wanted a banquette because of these experiences.


goodness, I love this one...

their kitchen is a lot like this one....
sending love Hans & Jill...

  1. If I could reconfigure my kitchen I would have a banquet! It is like warm open arms! You chose such beauties, my friend!

  2. Marsha, I totally agree and the first one is perfection!!

  3. I love all of these photos. A banquet is such a beautiful addition to a room. Unfortunatley, it won't work in my kitchen/keeping room, so we settled for a farmhouse table.

  4. You're so on the money with this one! Great examples. Cherry Kay

  5. Yeah! The pictures are up.....loooooove each and every one. Am a big fan of banquette seating and that first image is totally dreamy!

  6. I agree. A banquette is a lovely, welcoming addition to a kitchen that can accommodate one. These are lovely examples. Thanks. Best...Victoria

  7. Give me a good banquette and I am there for the day (or evening). I always tried to incorporate them into my clients houses, they used to resist me but usually came around and then loved them. So cosy and good for conversation. XO

  8. I have a refurbished pine church pew along a huge farmhouse table, not as comfortable as the banquets look, but certainly a gathering point when we entertain - although we have a lovely lounge it is always difficult to get people away from the table. Your photos are beautiful thank you for sharing x

  9. Definitely, they all are so beautiful, but the first one seems much more comfortable and posh to me. :)
    Nice post as always, Marsha! :)
