With so many big bold colors in style and with so many people downsizing to smaller quarters.  Banquettes have made quite the buzz.

They are great in small spaces and really give a room personality.  Built-ins are in!!

I've even seen people use sectional couches as banquettes.  That look is pretty awesome too.

What a great use of a small space

  1. Monica,
    Nice feature. I have always loved pretty, cozy and functional. This was the plan for my home until a chine cabina threw that idea to the wind. I love the ones you showed and hope someday to have one!
    Thanks for sharing!
