The Banquette Is Set! Finally.


It took me a million or so hours to finally find the table for our banquette in the kitchen. We have a large island we've been using in the meantime, so we weren't totally put out during my search. Turns out it's kinda hard to find a table you love that's the right look, size, and price.

It's not exactly what I had in mind, but frankly I was just tired of looking and wanted to be done with it. And I like it. We ordered it from Restoration Hardware during a sale.

I found the Cobble Chairs (and also the napkins that I've had for awhile) at one of my favorite local furniture stores, Celadon. But you can find the chairs online here since I was all selfish and bought the last two at Celadon a few months back. The art is from Black Crow Studios. And the stripy throw can be found in my girl Amber's Shoppe.

I had originally planned to get cushions for the bench but am going to wait until my kids are older and not all "i'm gonna just wipe my hands anywhere" even if it is an accident.

Anyway, I'm happy. It's a nice spot for my family to eat, for kids to color, and for me to sit with my computer, coffee, and read blogs.
