Window seating in awkward space.

May 12, 2014 in Design Dilemma
The breakfast area has an irregular shape. I want to keep the 27" tulip along with a window seating. I don't know if I should build the seating around the irregular shape window or only build in a section only. Any suggestion? Thank you!

Build an L shaped window seat on the right angled walls. chairs can go around the tulip after.

A banquette that angles with the wall would help maximize the space for seating.

I agree with Chemayne. Also, a really fun print on a drapery would really finish the space nicely. Good luck!

If you can find a fold up seating that can be mounted on the wall below the windows, this will allow you to have space for seating when you need it.

Yes, the built-in seating idea seems perfect. If you add hinges to the top of the seats rather than nailing it to the base, you will have extra storage within for linens and rarely used appliances.

Curtains and a rug to ground everything would cozy it up and help.

The banquette seating concept seems the general consensus here. (interesting to me to see this return to being in 'vogue' - my Dad built one for our dinette in 1950! -great storage solution for xl pots and pans) I would get or make a table to fit the space too and use the tulip table elsewhere. A set of comfy cushions for the banquette in coordinating with window treatment fabric would be lovely.

Agree with the bench and add decorative pillows. Roll up the blinds or replace with a white material roman or roller shades.

I immediately thought of built in window seating! You could do cushions in the same cute fabric that's in the chairs and some cute relaxed roman shades for the windows!

A window seat would work beautifully, it opens up the space too. We would replace the blinds with some curtains to let in more sunlight.

I would build the bench seat at the back and have 2 really comfortable chairs similar but maybe not quite as chunky as these http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/S89830491/
Then I would accent with some beautiful green pear (popular for 2014) coloured pillows and accents. http://www.zazzle.ca/badass_wear/gifts?cg=196296580686359510

Seems like you'd need a somewhat larger table if you are doing seating for 4 ( or more) people. This tabLe looks like it would only accommodate 2 diners.

I was thinking the same as madgone. If it's just being used for tea for example and not place settings then maybe 4 would be fine.

I have seen upper cabinets on a base used for banquette seating. Pinterest or Ikea hacks has ideas.

You could put a rounded rod around the wall to make the area look round, put a nice grey curtain and add a flower or something on the table !

Update the Window Coverings! Work with the design and colour of the flooring, as well as the chairs. Maybe match the colouring on the chair, or match with the floor. Sheer Elegance shades always help the style of a room by creating some fashion and functionality. Let the light in or block the light out with one motion of the chain control.
