Bench cushions - How do you secure the cushions to the bench? I have a similar style bench and need some cushions, but I don't want them to slide all over the place when people slide in and out from the table.

Hi there,
This was an interesting project because the client also designed the interiors, so unfortunately I don't know how these cushions are fastened to the bench. Although, I could imagine a strip of Velcro might do the trick. I hope that helps and thanks for your interest!

Hi there,
Unfortunately we do not know. The furniture for this house was chosen by the owner. Sorry we can't be of more help.

Hi there,
Unfortunately the name of who made these cushions was filed away years ago when we finished the project. But thank you for your interest!

It looks like a simple A-line shade over a bulb, hung on a pole/rod. I think I see a diffuser over the bulb, too. Nice touch. You could have this made easily at a lamp shop, but I'll bet you can find it at bellacor.com, lightinguniverse.com, lampsplus.com etc.

How can I tell if my furniture is solid wood or veneer?

It is important to know the difference when you're buying a piece, but especially when you are selling. To many people, a solid wood piece vs a veneer piece is a determining factor. Here are a few clues to help you discover what you have.

-Weight is a major indicator. For the most part, solid wood pieces are heavier than veneer.

-If you notice any flaking or peeling at the corners, you have a veneer piece.

-Veneer pieces tend to be finished on all sides, where solid wood pieces remain unfinished on hidden sides. (called stud pieces)

-If you can feel the grain, then it's solid wood...check to see if the grain on the side matches up at the edge with the grain on top. This also is a sign of solid wood.

-Carved details mean it is solid wood. Veneer or laminate can't have that.

-Especially with mid century furniture, edge banding is a clear sign of veneer. It is meant to cover up the unfinished edge of the veneer...no edge banding means solid wood.

Hopefully this will help you determine what it is that you own. Remember that wood veneer is also used on very nice and expensive pieces of furniture, as well as solid wood. Both materials have their pros and cons, and you shouldn't let the fact that something is wood veneer deter you from liking and enjoying it.

Dimensions of breakfast nook - I am currently in the planning phase of building a new home and really like the idea of an L-shape bench seating. What dimensions of a breakfast nook area would I use to accommodate 4-6 people with a built in bench. I also have formal dining area.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Where and How to Toss the Throw Pillows
These throw pillows bring in coastal colors along with comfort to this eating nook.
Becky Harris added this to Update That Beachy Style!
This room has beautifully detailed moldings, and the furnishings carefully balance comfort with spare style. The simple table joins woven chairs with a comfortable eating nook. Most important, the design does not overwhelm the view.
