The table is a vintage Danish Rosewood table, so unfortunately is not available. I have seen many wonderful vintage modern tables similar to this so I know they're out there!

Hi There! just catching up on this...the banquette is from Todd Hase design called the Iris. I didn't see it recently in their product listing, but they may still have it.

They look like they may be vintage finds that were re-upholstered to match the sofa. My best recommendation for vintage searching is www.1stdibs.com Good luck!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The dining room and living room are one large open space that needed to serve many functions. “My client wanted a space where one person could be reading, another could be working on a laptop while another watched television," Kristen says. "I integrated the banquette so that it could serve as place to seat diners as well as a comfortable spot for someone who wanted to work on their computer.”
Becky Harris added this to Cozy Up to a Loveseat at the Table
Create an instant banquette. Push a flat-back sofa or loveseat against a wall to create a banquette. This designer has matched the upholstery of the banquette loveseat to the chair pads to unify the different styles of seats around the table.
Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to The Versatility of Modern Sofas
Pull an armless sofa up to a dining table for a comfortable, informal look that will keep the conversation going into the evening. Accent chairs donning the same avocado green upholstery unify the look.
A331 Pendant Lamp. Another piece that made it from a site-specific spot into Aalto's permanent collection? The ethereal yet straightforward A331 pendant lamp. The steel rings are plated in brass.
