Designing a banquette isn’t about furniture alone. We usually build up layers of texture and colour using art, accessories, and low-slung lighting. Allow 70-80cm between the table and the pendant light to avoid obstructing sigh lines. Comfortable cushions with contrasting trims can pick out colour from the prints above and coordinate with the kitchen. All these elements combine to make the space more inviting and feel like a cohesive part of the room.
