Front on view of banquet area. This seats a family of 3 kids and two adults and they love this area of their kitchen and also do homework here and arts and crafts. The table is driftwood with a custom marine finish on top buffed out so anything can be spilled on it and it won't get damaged. Fabric is 100% nylon so super durable and though the pic appears crowded there is over 20 inches on both sides to get into the back banquet.
The nook was already there-as you can see from the BEFORE picture. It just needed a window and I put in something oval-one of my favorite shapes and the clock that was previously there was about the right size and I designed everything backwards-custom-from there.
The oval custom window was not cheap. This shape is expensive. It required masonry work and about two weeks of work to get it perfect. Thankfully the client had the money and was willing to spend to see the vision through. This is the most key aspect to creating beauty often in renovations.

Who made the bench/booth, chairs & table? - I love the feel of this room. I want to replicate this look in my dining area. We're did you get the wall paper? »
Coziness can mean having to make at least four people get up in order for you to leave the table. While this sounds inconvenient, it's just part of the price paid for clever space saving, and it's really not that big a deal.
