Hi,
Thanks for the compliment.
I did not select the table - but if memory serves it was +/- 2'-6" x 4 or 5 feet long -- two were made - one sat here and the other on the screened porch with the idea that they could be ported together in either location to create a larger table.
If I come across more information, I'll post it.
Thanks for the question.

Hi -
The lights are from a company that is unfortunately no longer in business - Kinds of Bugs Ya, which I believe was in NYC.
thanks,
Cathy

Hi-
I am not sure I understand your question - but let me answer what I think you are asking.
The banquette is 8'-3" long and the seat is 2' - 4" deep. It sits in the corner of a combined dining/kitchen space. The area dedicated to the dining is very roughly 11'-6" x 12'- 0". I hope this gives you the information you were inquiring about.
Thanks,
Cathy

Hi-
Benjamin Moore# HC-111 Nantucket Grey is the color - it reads somewhat differently depending on the light and like all colors is influenced by adjacent colors. It is always a good idea to get brush outs done on card stock at a large enough size and using the gloss that you are considering and set them with the other materials in play in the space that they will go in. The paint chips are all matte and always have a different quality than the large brush outs.
Good Luck!

We actually make gorgeous hand-made fused glass pendant lights very similar to these. Check out our Tulip fixture in our Peleg Collection. It is available in a 3"x3", 9"x9" or a larger 9"x15.7" size. Best of all you can make a custom fixture with any size canopy with individual or multiple pendants, and any height. We also carry a nice selection of other Blown and Fused glass lighting.

Hi -
Thanks for the question -- the table was a custom piece from a furniture maker who I think was based in or near Pescadero, CA -- the owner selected the table -- http://www.madeinpescadero.com/furniture/dining-room-furniture/55-meier-brothers.html
I think that this was the company -- The Meier Brothers who are part of a group called Made in Pescadero. I suggest emailing them with the image and seeing if they can help you.
Good luck --

I had my millwork man to build a "L" shape banquette for me and now I'm looking for someone to make the cushions for the seat and possibly a backrest. I may just do pillows for the back. Any suggestions on someone to make the cushions would be helpful. Thanks.
