sorry - those items were the homeowners. the rooster must have been available in a local store years ago, as i actually had 2 clients who had it sitting in their kitchen. i always took this is as a great omen, as my last name actually is a diminuative form of the german term for rooster. :)

This is fabulous! I'd love to know the depth of the bench with those thick back pillows? - I'm building this and want the same look across the back (thick pillows) so I am having a hard time deciding how deep to build the bench. Thanks much!

Cushions - What suggestions do you have for the cushions. I will have to find somebody to custom-make them, and have no idea on the thickness of the cushions and what are the best materials for a breakfast nook. Is it better to have the pillows for the back, a longer pillow, or just the wall?

see, that all depends on your lifestyle, your physique, the design of the bench....
height is a crucial issue - you don't really want to be much higher than 18" or 19" with a cushion top that then compresses down to about 16 1/2 or 17" seating height - otherwise your toes don;t reach the floor...so the bench needs to be designed with a cover (or no cover) in mind.
the seats here are 3" thick.

same goes for the back. because this bench is curved i kept the design of the back straight up, otherwise the benchback would have been way more complicated to build. because of that i made the seat deeper, to allow me to add a thick pillow. it's loose pillows in this case for easy maintenance - it's not expensive to get a new set made for them, and one can change materials with the season.

if you go through my portfolio there is another example of a curved bench, where we simply went with a fixed bolster in the back for upper back support - had to do with the architectural design/ window height and other restrictions...

on a current project we do not want to cover up the beautiful wood
the bench is made out of so i consider the surface as kind of a wood chair type of thing, and simply add some loose storebought pillows...

fixed upholstery would be another option, like in a diner booth, but you should keep in mind that you have to select a material that suites your lifestyle. You don;t want to reupholster once a year...

So are you saying that the wood part of the bench is approximately 16" high? Then you added the 3" cushion?

The Sky is the Limit Design
All colours from Benjamin Moore
Wall is HC 142 Stratton Blue
Trim is 2143-60 Moonlight White
Ceiling is HC 147 Woodlawn Blue

Keep in mind that this colourscheme has been developed for the light typical in the North West Coastal region of Canada. Colour pigments react very stongly to light, and are also infllueced by the reflections of outside - for example we have a lot of reflection from the ocean, as well as from Evergreen plants, which has a huge impact on how a colour works in a room.

Benjamin Moore colours work very well here in town because the black pigment in their base colours has a softening effect. However, if I am working with clients from other parts of the country or in different location we often choose more saturated hues.

I would never simply copy a colour code from the information in a magazine. Also, keep in kind that colours change when being photographed and printed! If you like the colour as it appears on the screen it would be better to hold up paint swatches next to it and select something that comes close. Then you go and grab a pint or so as a sample pot, brush it onto a large piece of posterboard, and tack it onto the wall to look at it for a few days, and in different light.
