Have seen those benches somewhere, but...

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This corner of the kitchen gets a pop of color from a set of Jonathan Adler plates the client scored on, a few yellow printed throw pillows, and a metal bamboo chandelier De Vargas found on eBay and had painted yellow. The benches were custom made; De Vargas had them covered in a faux-alligator vinyl to withstand any spills. The rest of the seating is covered by a pair of Bertoia wire chairs.
